would you please not use $_REQUEST in any of your examples? $_REQUEST is
one of the biggest design weaknesses in PHP. Every application using
$_REQUEST is most probably vulnerable to Delayed Cross Site Request
Forgery problems. (This basically means if e.g. a cookie named (age)
exists it will always overwrite the GET/POST content and therefore
unwanted requests will be performed)

And well... This thread continues without a single valid (!= personal
opinion) reason why type hinting should NOT be introduced. BTW accepting
the string '1' where an (int) type hint is placed would be the next
stupid design decision.
