I would recommend you check out the internals mailing list archive.  We've been working on this for many months and there have been numerous RFCs about this.  The work was "completed" quite a while ago, but the difficulty has been merging this into a release branch.

We first wanted to have this in PHP 5.6, but ran into some friction with that so now it's targeted for PHP 7.  Anatol recently merged our patches with PHPNG in the master branch.

Thanks,
Steve
