Nope. In fact, it's officially supported syntax:


I love it, particularly when used with the already-noted multi-line array
syntax (I don't recommend it with single-line arrangements):

$foo = array(
); //$foo

This makes it dead easy to add, remove, or reorder elements without
worrying about accidentally breaking the syntax. Much like always using
braces around flow-control blocks, this practice makes future bugs less
likely to be born.

Now if only we could have support for trailing commas in SQL UPDATE/INSERT
field and value lists....
