[pkg-kolab] mod-php vs php-fpm.

In my experiments building some of the roundcube & kolab components
( http://ghic.org/~diane/bottom-up-kolab.html )
I modified some of the packages to depend on php5 | php5-fpm
The biggest problem I ran into for doing that was that chwala has some
.htaccess files in public_html and public_html/api and if you don't have mod-
php loaded apache can't parse them.
At least when using php5-fpm it looks like you can rename the .htaccess files
( http://php.net/manual/en/configuration.file.per-user.php )
Unfortunately the documentation seems to suggest .user.ini files won't work
with mod-php. I don't know much about packaging php code, so I don't know if
its reasonable to try and support both environments in official packages.
It does look like php5-fpm does have the advantage it can work with nginx in
addition to apache worker. While mod-php can only work with apache prefork.
