[php-maint] php5-json is missing

Hi PHP maintainers,

I did a upgrade to php5 version 5.5.0~rc2+dfsg-1 on my laptop and as per
the news the json module is no longer shipped as part of php any more so
a local site which I host on my laptop doesn't work any more.

The NEWS file says I should install php5-json package which uses json-c
library to get the functionality back but I don't seem to find any
package by name php5-json in the archive so can any one point me where
is this package or is it yet to be uploaded? And any work around is
appreciated (one I can think is get the source and re-compile the
package with json module support but I'm not sure if it is possible).

I'm not subscribed to list so I've set Reply-To header to cc me and the
list together.

Thanks in Advance.
