extract() currently only extracts arrays into variables.

I think it would be good to be able to extract data objects too.

Reproduce code:

$car1->wheels = 4;
$car1->horsepower = 40;
$car1->seats = 2;

extract($car1, EXTR_PREFIX_ALL, 'car1');

$car1_wheels = 4
$car1_horsepower = 40

You could get the behaviour that you want with:

extract(get_object_vars($carl), EXTR_PREFIX_ALL, 'carl');

if that helps

Given the simple work-around is this something you are interested in pursuing farther?
