abstract static methods?

Threaded View
Was wondering shouldn't an abstract static method cause a E_STRICT ?

this is my test.

abstract class Test_Abstract
    protected abstract static function testStatic();

class Child extends Test_Abstract
    protected static function testStatic()
        echo 'what';
$test = new Child();

or how should i read this

"Due to an oversight, PHP 5.0.x and 5.1.x allowed abstract static
functions in classes. As of PHP 5.2.x, only interfaces can have them."


im running 5.2.2

Hmm... this has to work (i.e. raise an error) - there is a check in ZE  
code, there is a test in tests/ and actually it does work on my self  
compiled php, but not on the precomp 5.2.3 binary. Weird.

However, I think disabling abstract statics was a rather stupid action  
and they definitely will be back soon, because late binding for statics  
is already on the way.

Unless next_page.php generates PHP, the script with this include will
only get HTML.
