However, this approach to factory methods does not address one of the key stated goals above. Specifically, it fails to provide one of the benefits of convenience factories by eliminating the need for "switch" like constructs in userland. So if the developer must call a factory method with 3 arguments in one situation, but 4 arguments in another, instead of just loading up a $options PHP array with <keyword,value> pairs, the developer will need something like the switch statement described in the "convenience factories" section.
