Request #60551 session_set_save_handler should support a core's session handler interface

session_set_save_handler expects callbacks to session handler's operations (open, close, etc). It would be great if this function accepts a core's session handler interface. Something like:

interface Session_Handler_Interface {
    function open();
    function close();
    function read();
    function write();
    function destroy();
    function gc();

class Some_Handler implements Session_Handler_Interface {
    // implementations ....

$handler = new Some_Handler();

Then, we'll have an OOP approach too. The old one should not be removed.

Thank you.

Thank you for the report, and for helping us make PHP better.

session_set_save_handler() now takes a SessionHandlerInterface, which SessionHandler implements.
