-  * Add a fourth optional parameter for spl_autoload_register called $types with the default value of T_CLASS ​(this would keep the BC), supported values would be any combination of T_CLASS ​and T_FUNCTION ​for now.+  ​* Add two new constants to spl: SPL_AUTOLOAD_CLASS,​ SPL_AUTOLOAD_FUNCTION.

     * As you would guess, this would work the same way as the $error_types parameter works for set_error_handler:​ you can specify for which type(s) of missing tokens the autoloader should be called.     * As you would guess, this would work the same way as the $error_types parameter works for set_error_handler:​ you can specify for which type(s) of missing tokens the autoloader should be called.
