It works if you write:

  $enquire->set_weighting_scheme(new XapianBM25Weight(1.0, 0.0, 1.0, 0.0, 0.0));

SWIG implements overload dispatch based on the PHP type so if a C++
method takes a double, you currently have to pass a floating point value
in PHP.

Ideally it would allow and convert an integer in cases like this where
there's no overload ambiguity, since such strict type requirements
aren't natural in PHP, but currently that doesn't happen.
