hello, i have two requests for next releases of php

like __call & __callStatic, __callFunction... for dynamic function overloading

and recursion for closures

Reproduce code:
function __callFunction($funcname, Array $arguments)
      echo $funcname;


function($increment) use ($i = 0)
      // code here
      // code here
      echo ++$increment;
      if ($increment==20) return;
      function use($increment);

alternative syntax:
recursion use($increment);

It is unclear what you are asking for, could you please clarify?
 [2015-01-07 21:49 UTC]
First request sounds like a plain function version of a class's __call.
  notDefined(); // -> __callFunction("notDefined", array())

Second request doesn't have the right syntax but the idea of getting a closure to call itself is already possible:
  $increment = function($i) use (&$increment) { // reference
    echo ++$i;
    if ($i == 20) return;
