[development] node_get_types() D5 and php5

Well, I don't want to get into a big thing about this but they both say that they return arrays. When in actual use 5.0 returns an object. At least PHP thinks so if you use gettype().

4.7) "An array consisting ('#type' => name) pairs".

5.0) "Either an array of all available node types, or a single node type, in a
variable format".

This should probably go over to the documentation list for correction. But do they have control over  core comments?

Really? Compare:




The return value is notably different.

I realize not every single detail is covered in the updating modules page, but 
the change IS documented in the api.

Do you Yahoo!?
