Unfortunately, there's a slight problem with this.

php5 produces a php5-mysql binary package, and a mysql-5.5 package
taking over libmysqlclient-dev hit unstable this morning.  That means
that php5-mysql will end up with a dependency on libmysqlclient18, which
isn't in testing.  php5-mysql appears to have a bunch of r-deps, so
breaking it temporarily probably isn't the greatest plan either.
