Accessing minus keys should start from the end of the array much like the behavior 
in Perl or Python 

Test script:
echo [1, 2, 3][-1] . PHP_EOL;
echo [3, 2, 1][-2] . PHP_EOL;
echo ['foo', 'bar'][-1] . PHP_EOL;

Expected result:

This is not possible, because -1 is a valid array key. Consider:

    echo [-1 => -1, 0, 1, 2][-1]; // int(-1)
