my suggestion would be to either (a) go entirely outside the pkg
management system and install php in /usr/local, or (b) build php
binaries from the source package, with the offending patches removed.

if you like, i'm all for shipping a debian/rules that has some kind of
test for "keep abi compatibility" mode, which would disable such
patches... as long as someone else is willing to do the footwork and
supply an initial patch.
