My general advice is: use what suits best at that moment, but lean as much as 
posible towards arrays.

The reason is that Drupal is moving away from objects, slowly: Some gnomes in 
Drupal Core have been working very hard at replacing objects for arrays last 
two releases. They even invented a syntax that allows arrays to look and act 
a little like objects array('#foo' => $bar). 
The reasons people chose this are both religious and pragmatic, and it is a 
can of worms as you can see on other branches of this thread :)

So, this seems to be, or else become, the "Drupal way".
