makes sense.  i'll take a closer look at how it's done in ubuntu.

how about you go ahead and commit anyway?  more eyes and potential
testers can't be bad...  if it's too disruptive you could always branch
off a seperate tree for testing.  after all, that's what vcs's are
for :)

also, can i ask what the situation is on the ubuntu-side of things for
php?  will you still be working on that?  if not, perhaps some
introductions would be in order with whoever's doing it.  ideally, i
think both sides of the fence would benefit from communication, if
not cooperation, on php packaging.
