SO's tag is defined as

final is a java keyword specifying that the reference declared as final cannot be modified once initialized

However, some questions related to php are tagged with the said tag. I'm thinking of these following options.

  1. Changing the tag's definition to include php (or other language that has keyword)
  2. Creating a tag name and . Placing at the start so that in tag intellisense, the word will appear and then the language.
  3. No change.

What do you think?

Update

It's fixed

I would propose that the existing tag wiki be broadened to discuss the use of this keyword in the several languages in which it appears. Tags like are quite ugly in my opinion.

Hmm, yeah the mere existence of java or php will disambiguate the final tag in questions with related to it. –  OnesimusUnbound Aug 6 '12 at 13:46
