Description:
------------
---
From manual page: https://php.net/function.json-decode
---
In the test script we have a array with depth:3 but when set depth to 3 in json_decode this drop a error and do not decode the json...
I think its a problem

Test script:
---------------
<?php
// Encode the data.
$json = json_encode(
    array(
        1 => array(
            'English' => array(
                'One',
                'January'
            ),
            'French' => array(
                'Une',
                'Janvier'
            )
        )
    )
);

// Define the errors.
$constants = get_defined_constants(true);
$json_errors = array();
foreach ($constants["json"] as $name => $value) {
    if (!strncmp($name, "JSON_ERROR_", 11)) {
        $json_errors[$value] = $name;
    }
}

// Show the errors for different depths.
foreach (range(1, 4) as $depth) {
    json_decode($json, true, $depth);
    echo "Last error: $depth ", $json_errors[json_last_error()], PHP_EOL;
}
?>

The top level also counts towards the "depth". Consider testing with $json=json_encode(42) and $json=json_encode(array()).

I think its a problem because non array can not and should not pass as parameter for encode and just array should be allow.
If apply this logic the top level array should not be counted
