Yes, that's my experience, and I've done that a lot. But in case you are 
expecting the array keys to be numerically ordered, note that you should 
not rely on that. If you loop through the elements later you may find 
the order of keys is not what you are expecting, especially if you have 
edited the array in the meantime.
