This, to me, seems like too much work for to small a feature... Even
though extensions might benefit from this feature, its easy enough to
implement in the extensions themselves and won't improve speed (and on a
technical note, the above method seems as if it would a little bit
slower (larger container, more operations, yada, yada, yada).
If its really necessary, the best (even though most inefficient, but it
wouldn't require a re-working of the internals) solution would be just
to have a function, zend_is_assoc_array(), which returns true if the
given hash is an associative array, false otherwise.
As for the other solution, the userland function, array_remove_assoc(),
just seems wayyyyyy to hacky for me, and really pushing it for such a
