Add generics support to PHP. So you can declare classes like this:

class MyGenericClass<T> {
   private $object;

   public function __construct() {
       $this->object = new T();


class MyGenericClass<T extends SuperTClass> {
   private $object;

   public function __construct() {
       $this->object = new T();

In the first case you can make a new (supposing that there is defined a B 
$a = new MyGenericClass<B>();

and in the second example you are forcing B to be a SuperTClass.

I hope you can implement this feature! Is great!!!

Expected result:
Generics included in a PHP relase.

Actual result:
No Generics support.
