Well - it's a miracle... I just tried the code you posted, and indeed PHP
(v.4.2.2) allows numeric identifiers - BUT ONLY as long as you're accessing
it indirectly.

        $key = 0;
        $$key = 'some data';    // works
        echo $$key;             // works
        echo "Key 0: $0"        // prints "$0", not the content (wrong)
        echo $0;                // error "unexpected T_DNUMBER"
