Request #77135 Extract with EXTR_SKIP should skip $this

I know that get_defined_vars() is not returning $this but for every developer it feels like a variable that is currently defined inside an object context.

As you can never overwrite $this - even outside an object context it would make sense that the extract function always work as $this is defined and use the appropriate method (skip/prefix).

Test script:

$arr = ['this' => 'hello world'];
extract($arr, EXTR_SKIP);
extract($arr, EXTR_PREFIX_INVALID, 'v_');

var_dump($v_hello === $arr['this']);

Expected result:

Actual result:
PHP Fatal error:  Uncaught Error: Cannot re-assign $this in /tmp/test.php:4
Stack trace:
#0 /tmp/test.php(4): extract(Array, 1)
#1 {main}
  thrown in /tmp/test.php on line 4
