Description:
------------
why, the property 'name' in the ReflectionObject, returns the name of the class 
instead of name of instance of class?
we have, already the method 'getName' for obtain the class name;

Please implements this change, i need to obtain the name of instance inside of 
constructor and other methods.

Test script:
---------------
<?php
   class storage {
      function __construct(){
         $p= new ReflectionObject($this);
         echo $p->name;
      }
   }

   $mystore = new storage('pub');
   //when the object is constructed echo() display 'storage' instead 'mystore'

?>

Expected result:
----------------
mystore

Actual result:
--------------
storage

Not possible/wouldn't make sense. As to the second part, there is no sensible solution for this case:

$mystore = new storage('pub');
$mystore2 = $mystore;

or

$this->prop = new storage('pub');
