Hi, i'm installed your extension 'gearman' and trying to write script using BDD testing with phpspec2, but it can't "double" any of classes GearmanClient or GearmanWorker, because they contains static method "clone". In php 5 "clone" is a reserved word and it's can't be a function(or method) name. Please fix this.

P.S. error: "PHP Parse error:  syntax error, unexpected 'clone' (T_CLONE), expecting identifier (T_STRING) in ..."
P.P.S. And we can't call 'clone' method directly in our scripts.

The 'clone' function has been in this package since the original author wrote it many years ago. While I certainly feel your pain, this is the first time anyone has said it has caused them a problem. I cannot break backwards compatibility for everyone else in a minor release. At best, a new method name can be chosen (like _clone or copy) and the existing clone method marked a deprecated. After 1-2 years of deprecation, the 'clone' method can be removed.

Considering releasing gearman 1.2.0 to fix this issue. It has been over a year since I added the alternative methods.

The gearman extension have not had much activity in the past few years, so I'm taking the safe bet that this is no longer under active development (as I don't consider the typo fixes on the github repo an active development), besides that it also targets unsupported PHP versions. Please unsuspend this report in case it begins to blossom with life once more
