Would it be possible to have magic setter/getter functions available on static 
context ?

The documentation says "Property overloading only works in object context. These 
magic methods will not be triggered in static context."

I would find it useful on a static context where I have a class A extending 
another class B, to access

Test script:

Class A {

   static $data = array('bar' => 99, 'foo' => 101);
   function __get($name) {

       if (isset(self::$data[$name])) 
           return self::$data[$name];

       return null;

Class B extends A {

echo B::$foo;

Expected result:
echo B::$foo; 

In the example should return 101.

Actual result:
In the example it triggers a fatal error.

In 5.3 it works if you change self:: to static:: like this 

class A {

   static $data = array('bar' => 99, 'foo' => 101);
   function __get($name) {

       if (isset(static::$data[$name])) 
           return static::$data[$name];

       return null;

class B extends A {

$object = new B();

print $object->foo;

@henrik: This is about static property overloading, not about late static binding ;)

Now that we have __callStatic() a pair a setter/getter pair __getStatic()/__setStatic() would be the next logical step to take.
