My earlier post to the list doesn't seem to have arrived yet, so here it is
again. You'll note from the posting that I'm not keen on the patch staying
in. There are considerable efforts being made by several of us on the QA
team trying to make the language more orthogonal, and this kind of ad hoc
addition really doesn't help.

I was really voting no for the original feature - just returning true or
false - unless it can be shown (and implemented) that iswhatever(multiple
args) will work sensibly across the board, and that implementing
iswhatever(multiple args) does not waste the function namespace for a new
feature - e.g. loads of php functions take optional extra arguments to
modify their behaviour, but once iswhatever gained the multi argument
functionality described, it would be impossible to extend the functionality
in this way.

Cheers, and apologies for such a long sentence
