whoops, i've been AFK since friday afternoon so i missed my chance i
guess.  actually i've been on the road and haven't had a chance to
finish testing anyway.

yes, and i've committed something to svn (php5 only for now) to this
affect.  basically:

if upgrading from < $next_upload_version
	if extension line is in SAPI/php.ini
		remove extension line

which should do the trick.

in the next couple days i'll be spending some time testing sarge->etch
transition route with various combinations/permutations of apache/php
setup to make sure nothing explodes, which should make mid-next week
a reasonable time to upload it.
