Not a good idea. It would have to be a special case, that only applies when the array is used with a comparison operator as there would be other cases where it wouldn't work.

We'd probably start seeing code like:

If $a = 0 Then
    $a = 4
EndIf

A confusing feature, especially in a large code base, even with systems hungarian. For pretty much no saving either. Sure for arrays that have the count in the first index it might be nice.

I've rejected the request. PM me on the forums if you want to discuss it further, if another MVP or dev would like this feature then they can re-open the ticket.
