That would make the system more complex, but it isn't too hard to implement.
I might give a try to it this weekend.
That reminds me the old libapache?-mod-php+ Conflicts: with the
package of the other PHP apache module.
If we go this approach (adding a conflicts system at configuration
level) I'd also like to see something similar when PHP6 is released.
So people could actually have both versions of the PHP's apache SAPI
installed but only have one enabled.
I know this last comment is kind of offtopic, but just came to my mind :-)
