ReflectionProperty class in reflection api lacks getDefaultValue method.

So there is no way to find out if a property in a class examined with reflection API has a default value, and what this value is.

This would be very useful for me. Especially for code generation

I could use this feature as well.

Yep, missing for me too - this is one of the two missing features holding back some of the really cool stuff you could do with reflection... there are no good workarounds for this, it really needs to be fixed.

Note there's already ReflectionClass::getDefaultProperties() and ReflectionClass::getStaticProperties().

Closing as Wont fix because the original value of static properties for user-land classes is not retained.
