At present, FFI::arrayType() requires that the dimensions be specified as an array of integers. For convenience, it would be nice to have it accept an integer when creating an array with a single dimension. The semantics would be identical to the logic shown below:

class FFI
    static function arrayType($type, $dims)
        if (\is_int($dims)) {
            $dims = [$dims];

        // ...

Test script:
$int = \FFI::type('int');

var_dump(\FFI::arrayType($int, [10]));
var_dump(\FFI::arrayType($int, 10));

Expected result:
object(FFI\CType:int32_t[10])#2 (0) {
object(FFI\CType:int32_t[10])#3 (0) {

Actual result:
object(FFI\CType:int32_t[10])#2 (0) {
FFI::arrayType() expects parameter 2 to be array, int given in ...
