I just commited a first version, what works for now:

function foo() { return new A(); }
function bar() { $i = new A(); return $i; }
$j = foo();

(see also php/duchain/tests/duchaintest the testReturnTypeClass test)

At this stage we are allready better than ZendStudio and PHPEclipse :D

could you take a look at the code...
