[php-maint] Bug#500580: package php5-mysql depends on php5-cli, but I do want libapache-mod-php5

Package: php5-mysql
Version: testing
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

Here is a status :

	$ apt-get install php5-mysql
	The following packages will be REMOVED:
	  libapache-mod-php5 php5-imagick
	The following NEW packages will be installed:
	  php5-cli php5-mysql
	The following packages will be upgraded:
	  php5-common php5-gd

The problem is that I *do* want to use php5-mysql with libapache-mod-php5,
as it has worked for months, before my last dist-upgrade.
I don't understand the problem since libapache-mod-php5 seems to be part of
the list of php5-mysql dependancies.. ?

Switching to php5-cli is not a solution for me, as I need to access http
authentication tokens from PHP (which is possible with libapache-mod-php5,
but not with php5-cli).
