Drupal uses objects. Reasons are probably lost by now in the ancient past.
PHP is still not the best. I can write:
somefunction(array('this' => 'that'))
while there is no similar construct for objects.
Also we use arrays for links, menus, links and soon mails.
So, I propose removal of objects on practical grounds: shorter notation
and a very little memory gain.
If you have an opinion please share but I think we are only furthered by
_practical_ viewpoints. No theory can make Drupal faster or lower its
The change looks big but it's not, it's scriptable and I can whip up such
a script in a very short time.
Ps. Readability issues? I do not think there is any difference.
