Oh Ondřej, come on! This was not a question about the actual suhosin
status, but about the PHP packages.
With the actual PHP packages, it is not possible to install a package
named "php5-suhosin". Do you want to tell me, the PHP Maintainers
didn't consider that php5-suhosin maybe come back?

Maybe I'm dumb, but I actually don't see a problem, if there occure a
new suhosin upstream release, which maybe compatible with PHP 5.5 and
5.4. Did I oversee anything?

- From my experiences with pu, this will likely rare happen til not.
Anyways this will add a big expense and even shifts a system where
php5-common and php5-suhosin can be installed along far in the future.

Which unfortunately doesn't scale in larger setups.

Just my to cents, Jan.
