If I define a descendant class, I *obviously* know what create_object should
do, as this should only effect internal classes. So could anybody please
explain to me why the parent's create_object is enforced?
It causes to write hacks like:
zend_object_value (*__create_object)(zend_class_entry *ce TSRMLS_DC);
INIT_CLASS_ENTRY(ce, "classname", php_my_method_entry);
ce.create_object = php_my_object_new;
/* hack starts here */
__create_object = parent_ce->create_object;
parent_ce->create_object = php_my_object_new;
php_my_class_entry = zend_register_internal_class_ex(&ce, parent_ce, NULL TSRMLS_CC);
parent->create_object = __create_object;
If this limitation is there without a really good reason, I'd like to get rid of it.
