I made a huge change in packaging the extensions by merging work by
Clint Byrum.  We talked about possibility of cooperation over new
extension manager some time ago and he came up with php5{en,dis}mod
script which I took (and bended).  So in the end the version in
experimental moves all conf.d files to /etc/php5/mods-available/ and
then enables them again.

There's one minor glitch - if you are upgrading it leaves
$extension.dpkg-new files in new directory, which is kind of
inconvenient, but I was unable to find (for now) why. We will need to
solve this before wheezy is out, so the users don't freak out (they
usually start bugfilling duplicate bugs if they freak out :)).
