[php-maint] Bug#637057: Installing php5-idn makes apache2 segfault (if using the php5 module)

Package: php5-idn
Version: 1.2b-6
Severity: critical

I installed this php5 module as a dependency of libphp-simplepie and
since then apache doesn's start anymore. I verified that decommenting
the line in /etc/php5/conf.d/idn.conf makes it work again.

Further inspection seems to indicate that it must not be loaded at the
same time as php5-intl... since loading it without loading php5-intl

This package has been removed from unstable, but maybe we should do in
stable what we did in unstable:
- update the libphp-simplepie dependency to php5-intl
- make php5-intl conflict with php5-idn
