1.2.783. New Object Then Immediate Call

This rule reports immediate calls on a new object. This can be simplified with a parenthesis structure, including with the assignation inside the parenthesis.

It is also being discussed to drop the parenthesis altogether.

<?php

$a = new Foo();
$a->bar();

($a = new Foo())->bar();

?>

See also new MyClass()->method() without parentheses.
