Package: php5
Version: 5.2.5-3
Followup-For: Bug #452347

The arguments from the thread you quoted are talking about module changes, and why modules shouldn't be allowed to 
change the session lifetime.  However, perhaps I am alone in this, but I prefer to not touch the default configuration 
files, so then upgrades are easier.  gc_maxlifetime is currently the only change I have to make in php.ini.  All other 
changes can be done in the conf.d directory.

I guess the alternative is to modify the cron script and ignore the output of maxlifetime, since the cron job is less 
likely to change in an upgrade than php.ini.
