When trying to union two arrays, be able to union all values.  So, basically
array_merge_recursive, but using ++.

Test script:
$a = array("a" => "apple", "b" => "banana");
$b = array("a" => "pear", "b" => "strawberry", "c" => "cherry");

$c = $a ++ $b; // Union all of $a and $b.

$c = array("a" => array("apple", "pear"), "b" => array("banana", "strawberry"), "c" => "cherry");

Please do not consider this comment as a negative view on the
merits of your proposal – every proposal which requires changes of

ones, must be done through the RFC process. This helps make the
process predictable, transparent and accessible to all developers.
