[php-maint] Bug#666411: php5-common needs Breaks for all package versions not working with PHP 5.4

Package: php5-common
Version: 5.4.0-3
Severity: serious

PHP 5.4 is incompatible with the Debian stable versions of
some PHP using software.

An example is jffnms due to #658869.

php5-common must add Breaks for all software versions in stable
or included in unstable after squeeze.

The currecnt situation without the Breaks it is a disaster for:
- everyone doing a partial upgrade from squeeze wheezy when wheezy
  gets released and
- for everyone currently running testing and
- when PHP 5.4 gets added to the official Debianb backports
