There are a few different patterns in use in the wild.

The PHPStorm IDE uses Foo[] where Foo is the type.

PHPLint uses array[Bar]Foo where Bar is the array key type and Foo is
the array value type.

I think it would be very helpfull to specify several ways to specify
return value. I really need, for example, this ways:

* Array(MyClass)
* Array( SOME_CONSTANT => MyClass )
* Array( SOME_CONSTANT => Array(SOME_CONST1 => MyClass1 ,
SOME_CONSTANT2 => MyClass2 ) )

The last 2 ways are very usefull if you use assotiative arrays as a
return values.

If it's possible i could do this features by myself, but i don't really
know how and where change source code. Please contact me (StepLg [@]
GMail.com without []) about this question.

An option mentioned on the Sourceforge forums [1] is to use the
"generics" syntax:

@return array<MyClass> array of MyClass objects

it would be helpful if @return would allow specifying the type of array
values, e.g.

@return array(MyClass) Array of MyClass objects
