make the define able to replace the function names, ie.

#if debug
#define assert(a) (doAssert(a))
#else
#define assert(a)
#endif

This way, when code is released, the functions that aid in debugging the application never get called.

you can turn assertions on/off using assert_options() / .ini settings

Personally, I would kill for macros, but I don't think we'll see them in PHP in close future.

PHP 7 supports disabling evaluation of assertions: https://wiki.php.net/rfc/expectations
