the function com_event_sink is documented like this:
bool com_event_sink ( variant comobject, object sinkobject [, mixed sinkinterface] ).
but the sinkinterface  does not take value of the default com object event interface so optional is useless because the developper must know all default object event sink interface.

Reproduce code:
class IEEventSinker {
  var $terminated = false;

// when all objects of page are loaded
	function DocumentComplete(&$dom, $url) {
		GLOBAL $ie;
		if ($GLOBALS['elem']!=null)
			com_event_sink($GLOBALS['elem'],$this /*,'HTMLAnchorEvents'*/);
// when closing browser
	function OnQuit() {
		echo "Quit!\n";
		$this->terminated = true;
// when clicking in url
	function onclick() {
		echo "click!\n";
$ie = new COM("InternetExplorer.Application");
// note that you don't need the & for PHP 5!
$sink = new IEEventSinker();
com_event_sink($ie, $sink, "DWebBrowserEvents2");
$ie->Visible = true;

while(!$sink->terminated) {
$ie = null;

<body >
<A id='test' href='#'>test</A>

Expected result:
browser is launching, navigate on test.html file.
when we click to url test the message is to be written in the console :

Actual result:
no message written.

with this version we have a big regression,it does not solve the bug and a simple example of catching DocumentComplete event of WebBrowser does not work as before : it's not even called.
