Description:
------------
Description:
It would be nice if functions array_pop and array_shift took a parameter that told how many elements to pop.

Example:
mixed array_pop ( array &$array , $num = 1 )
mixed array_shift ( array &$array , $num = 1 )

Test script:
---------------
function array_pop_mine(array &$array, $num)
{
	$removed = array();
	while ($num > 0)
	{
		//$removed[] = array_pop($array);
		array_unshift($removed, array_pop($array));
		--$num;
	}
	//return array_reverse($removed);
	return $removed;
}
$arr = array(3, 1, 4, 1, 5, 9);
print_r($arr);
$rem = array_pop_mine($arr, 3);
print_r($arr);
print_r($rem);

Actual result:
--------------
Array
(
    [0] => 3
    [1] => 1
    [2] => 4
    [3] => 1
    [4] => 5
    [5] => 9
)
Array
(
    [0] => 3
    [1] => 1
    [2] => 4
)
Array
(
    [0] => 1
    [1] => 5
    [2] => 9
)
