my personal feeling is, that one reason to invent TS was, to make writing
PHP as easy as writig JavaSript:

one.two.three instead of $one['two']['three'] or $one->two->three.

So we should ask, if it is a good idea to mix PHP elements into a scripting
language, that is rather JS orientated originally. Shouldn't we search in
the field of JS for syntax solutions first?
