[php-maint] Bug#687418: php5-cgi: Do NOT indisciminately enable Apache's php5-cgi module!

Package: php5-cgi
Version: 5.4.4-7
Severity: important

I specifically disabled the php5_cgi module in my Apache setup because this

	<FilesMatch ".+\.ph(p[345]?|t|tml)$">
    		SetHandler application/x-httpd-php

breaks fastcgi for me.

The last upgrade killed all my php-based web spaces. Not suspecting
something like this, I had to dig through Apache stuff for two hours. :-/

I don't think that it's an upgrade's business to re-enable ANY modules.
New installation, OK, I can see that. But NOT an upgrade.

Please fix. Thanks.
