I mean that I can't add global classes when passing type hint to function arguments.

In other places global classes work fine.

Considering nobody has looked at this in 9 months, I took a look into the source.

quercus/com/caucho/quercus/parser/ line 4468 - 4475

    if (_lexeme.indexOf('\\') >= 0) {
      throw error(L.l("namespace identifier is not allowed at '{0}'",
    else if (_peek == '\\') {
        throw error(L.l("namespace identifier is not allowed at '{0}\\'",

It seems Quercus is explicitly disallowing referencing the global namespace, but I could be wrong. This was just a 5 min dig into the source. I'm going to dig further into it and see if I can dig up/patch the problem, but I'm not really a Quercus developer.

Upon further digging, it appears that `parseFunctionArgDefinition()` is calling `parseIdentifier()`, which does allow namespaced identifiers. In this particular context, a namespaced identifier is perfectly valid, and thus `parseNamespacedIdentifier()` is the method that should be called.

I have a feeling this is a legacy problem from when PHP 5.3 introduced namespaces. I'm going to see if I can set up a proper dev environment ant patch this is the next few days.
