 From what I understand (as a participant in that thread), [] hasn't been 
deprecated for all arrays, just the situations in which you want to 
consider a string as an array of characters and are using a numeric 
index to point to a specific character.  Like so:

$string = "abcdefg";
echo $string{3};

(should print "d" unless I'm doing this wrong).

For most other arrays, brackets are still OK.
