Bug description:  in_array returning number of 'hits'

I'd like to see in_array returning the number of values matching, instead of just 

IMHO, it would not create any backwards compatibility problems, since 0 equals false 
anyway and > 0 equals true.

It would make constructing dual-parameter descisions much easier.

For example - a bounce script, where "bounce_count / day" > 6 AND "bounces /week" = 5.

This is very hard to do now, but with in_array returning the number of hits, it takes 
out at least 2 loops and a seperate "counts" array.
