The list of PHP 5.6 wishlist features seem to be minor to me, not comparable to addition of namespace in PHP 5.3, trait in PHP 5.4 and generator in PHP 5.5. Id say PHP 5.6 needs more than these, how about C# property accessors? How about operator overloading? How about wildcard namespace import? How about autoboxing? Perhaps not all of them will be included in PHP 5.6, but I'd expect to see at least 1 or 2.
