Well, this would be probably completely useless (at least I 
can't think of a meaningful use of this right now), but... is 
there a reason this can't be implemented in PHP? I know, time 
is a very precious commodity, and I wouldn't ask (or suggest) 
for an implementation of this if it would require extra work 
besides making pre- and post- increment / decrement in one 
statement. But if allowing ++$i++ (which I definitely consider 
useful) makes ++$i-- possible without additional effort, why 
disable it? It's possible to write completely useless junk 
software without this feature too.

Lack of knowledge of C prevents me from going to try and do 
this myself.
