Description:
------------
http://svn.php.net/viewvc/pear/packages/PHP_Compat/trunk/Compat/Function/bcinvert.php?view=log

PHP_Compat implements a function called bcinvert even though no such
comparable function exists in any version of PHP. As nice a feature as
it might be, PHP_Compat, in my opinion, isn't supposed to be a
collection of functions that would be *nice* to have - it's supposed to
be a collection of functions that PHP *does* have, in one version or
another.

If PHP_Compat is going to start including functions that would be
*nice* to have then where do you draw the line? And at this point
doesn't the name PHP_Compat become a bit of a misnomer? If PHP_Compat
is going to start including functions that would be nice to have then
maybe PHP_Compat's name ought to be changed to PHP_Functions or
something?
