Hi Ondřej,

I'm aware of the procedure, cause maintaining sarge-backport of php5. This 
teached me also, that providing security support for php5 is a hard job and 
in my case its only to remove LFS support, adjust depencies, disable mysqli 
and repackage the whole stuff. I've done this twice last days and it's 
getting a bit annoying!
Are there problems beside LFS (and maybe suhosin in the future) for 3rd party?

With kind regards, Jan.
