There are a variety of is_* methods that also exist as properties. The functions simply cast to bool. These can all be collapsed using __call() and @method annotations.

Patch attached.

May I ask which problem [38356] solves? I'm not really a fan of magic methods because they are … magic. How does this impact performance?

Through the @method annotation we seem to lose the @since tag. @DrewAPicture does DevHub support @method annotations or would we lose the methods/docs of these methods without further adjustments?

@ocean90 is correct that we lose data on when these methods were introduced. And I think more importantly we lose a lot of context that is useful to developers unfamiliar with the is_*() methods.

DevHub doesn't currently support @method tags, that is to say, the parser of course understands the tags but we don't expose the data in any form on DevHub. I think the preference here would be to keep the methods as non-magic to retain the extra context and versioning information.
