I agree with this, yes, but…

I disagree with this. Installing a package from jessie/sid on
a squeeze system is not supported in Debian, in the general
case (“skipping a release”), and this works in wheezy.

Anyway, I’ve just uploaded a version of mediawiki to sid which
depends on a “new enough” php5-common (with the latest fixes to
php5{en,dis}mod) since people are going to try this anyway (as
it’s generally unproblematic for “web” stuff like this).

Thanks for discovering!
