PHP incorrectly complains about static member functions not being compatible. This makes no sense as they're static functions, they don't have a $this pointer, the function being called cannot suddenly be a different function (as can be the case when overriding a non-static member function).

Test script:
class A { public static function get($a) {} }
class B extends A { public static function get($a, $b) {} }

Expected result:
No warnings should be emitted

Actual result:
Warning: Declaration of B::get($a, $b) should be compatible with A::get($a) in php shell code on line 1

Static methods can be called using instances so LSP rules still apply.
