Let's look at that.

In the first case you're doing a foreach loop on an array entitled $entry 
(single) using a variable entitled the same name representing the values in 
each element of the array  -- that doesn't make sense even if it works or is 
recommended by Zend Studio. That would be a hell of a bug to find.

In the second case, I find the syntax more correct. You are doing a foreach 
loop on an array entitled $entries (plural) using the values contained in the 
array as $entry (single) -- that makes much more sense to me.
