..._FILES so it handles nested keys properly.

Hey Simon, could you create an ArrayLibTest as well? Can have the same input/output combination, but test the method explicitly, rather than through a dozen layers of abstraction in HTTPRequestTest. Two reasons: Its clear that the method is indeed tested, and it removes uncertainty around side effects outside of ArrayLib influencing the behaviour.

Also, can you confirm that the method behaves the same way as the native $_REQUEST when it comes to merging arrays? I've looked at the docs but can't find anything helpful (http://www.php.net/manual/en/faq.html.php#faq.html.select-multiple, http://www.php.net/manual/en/language.variables.external.php)


Hey Ingo

I've added the tests to ArrayLibTest as well, and run equivalent tests using curl and print_r($_REQUEST). The only discrepancy between the $_REQUEST results and my method was the handling of numeric keys. $_REQUEST overrode them whereas the method appended them. I've updated the method to account for this and added an additional test case that covers this behaviour.
