Bug description: Cannot declare a static array with an index

Description:
------------
I would have thought that I could declare a static array in a class with
an index in the declaration, but I can't. I must instead use array() to
specify the desired index and value. Nowhere in the docs, that I could
find, does it say that you can't specify an index in a static array
declaration.

I saw in another bug that PHP does not allow the use of variable data at
compile time, and I guess since static variables are dealt with at compile
time, you can't be assigning data to a variable index. But even if the
index is define()ed beforehand, it still doesn't work.

Reproduce code:
---------------
<?php
define('INDEX', 'index');
class myclass {
// Does not with either the string 'index' or
// the constant INDEX.
public static $variable['index'] = 'some value';
//public static $variable = array('index' => 'some value'); This does
work.
}
echo myclass::$variable['index'];
?>



Expected result:
----------------
some value

Actual result:
--------------
P error: p error, unexpected '[', expecting ',' or ';' in ... on
line 6
