This is a great effort and promising, but I see there is no Travis-CI and/or 
AppVeyor tests yet for this. This is hard to tell consequently if it is 
working now, and more critically, if it will still be working in the future. 
We should really not merge features without corresponding tests ("untested 
code is broken code")
The documentation http://mapserver.org/mapscript/php/index.html should also be 
So I don't think this new feature is ready yet.
