I'm with Morrison, I see no actual use for this.

It's "cool", but what would you use it for?

I see little value in having a function that tells me how many objects
of any kind I have instantiated. Mostly, I see it as a way to help
teach people about assignment of objects works in PHP:

$a = new MyClass();
$b = $a;
var_dump(get_object_count());

And that's about the sum of how useful I think this is.

If it were to be able to narrow it to a specific class then it *might*
be a little more useful.

I see some merit in the idea that during development of an application
it could be useful to get a profile view of the object store, without
affecting those objects or introducing new objects in order to provide
that view.

There are other run-time use cases, but for me, mostly development and
debugging, without being intrusive or having any real impact on the
application or object store.
