no, i don't think, either, that this would be a good idea. but in 4.0.5
the "old" and the "new" syntax worked (i'm not sure what's really old and
what's new....). so if i want to get the childrens of a root domNode
i could write:

$children = domxml_children($root); (the old method ?)
$children = $root->children; (i assume the new one...)

in 4.0.5 both worked. in 4.0.6 only the second works, the first causes
a segfault... and segfaults are very annoying for debugging php-code (and
maybe some coders even don't know, where their error_log file is to look
for segfaults...)

and if you compare the returned array $children from the above example in
4.0.5 and in 4.0.6 they are quite different, and that's much more annoying
for writing cross-version (what a word...) code.

If the this change stays in 4.0.6 please please at least update the
documentation and clearly state the difference between 4.0.5 and 4.0.6.
