It would be a nice feature if more than one file could be included in a single include call. I've read the manual pages, and it doesn't look like it's possible at the moment.

(this of course also goes for include_once, require, and require_once)

Reproduce code:
// Today
include 'a.php';
include 'b.php';
include 'c.php';

// Tomorrow
include 'a.php', 'b.php', 'c.php';

Including several files at the same time is needed rather rarely, at least since the rise of autoloading.

Furthermore the proposed syntax has several issues when considering that include is an expression with a return value. What would it return? The return value of the last script? An array of return values? What would foo(include 'a', 'b') mean? Would it be foo((include 'a', 'b') or rather foo((include 'a'), 'b')? Etc.
