I think you're right. Please don't take the package assignment too 
seriously - this is simply assigned to php5 so the request can be found. 
Assuming the interface is packaged in its own binary package, it doesn't 
mean the php5 source package needs to build that package. The only 
change needed to the php5 source package may be to make php5 suggest the 
new binary package.

Thank you, that's interesting. The current release is 1.0.0RC2, released 
on 2010-10-24. The previous release was RC 1, released in 2006. It may 
not come very fast, but it's worth tracking.
