No, it looks like someone trying to turn PHP into Perl (or Python).
Personally I would prefer not to import Perl-style & Python-style syntax to PHP.
These things already work well(yes, you can think, that array() & range() are ugly, but they are already used in tonns of projects) and I can't see any reasons to change such fundamental things just because version number changes from 4 to 5.
If you really like this syntax - use Perl or Python, or whatever you want, but I really can't understand why PHP should allow you to use this syntax too.
