there’s an rfc vote currently underway for a number of new array functions in php8.4  (thanks to symfony station for pointing this out!). the proposal is for four new functions for finding and evaluating arrays using `callables`. the functions are:

* array_find()
* array_find_key()
* array_any()
* array_all()

the full details can be read here.

if we’re impatient, though, we can skip waiting for php8.4 and homeroll these ourselves.
