Description:
------------
Hello,

I love the extension. :) However, could __call possibly catch requests for non-declared overload methods? It would:

* Help maintain the code brief
* Consist with call_user_func behaviour
* Say we overload methods within a class hierarchy and result of the overload yields an object of the original class. Cumulation of logic inside __call would save repeating the similar routine in each method:

// calculating effect of the overload
$class = get_class();
return new $class($result);

Reproduce code:
---------------
class Person
{
	function __call($meth, $args)
	{
		switch(substr($meth, 2))
		{
			case 'add':	return 'Couple';
			case 'sub':	return 'Part';
		}
	}
}

$john = new Person;
echo $john + 1;

Expected result:
----------------
Couple

Actual result:
--------------
Notice: Object of class Person could not be converted to int in C:\www\main\phppm\test.php on line 16

Sure, that's certainly feasible.... I'll see what I can do, no promises on when though...

The operator PECL package have not had a release for 4 years and development activity seems to have ceased, if a new maintainer picks up this package, then this report should be re-opened
