in phpapi due to enabling the LFS support and the effect it has on json
build dependency loop. See #743842

I think we have several options:
a) Downgrade dependency on php5-json to Recommends and add a NEWS entry and
debconf text template with warning
b) patch PHP 5.x sources with php-json-c extensions and build it from
there, so we never get out of sync like this
c) do some dependency magic like: "Introduce php5-json-dummy package that
would satisfy php5-common dependency, but fill a serious bug on this dummy
package so it never gets migrated to testing."
d) drop the +lfs from phpapi and fill a Breaks on every current reverse
PECL dependency we have in the archive
Option b seems like to right one in the long term.
I think I'll revert the patch, as I want to see this resolved quickly, and
then prepare the option b version without any RC issues over my head.
Sounds like a plan ?
+ do d) when php 5.6 hits unstable and we do the transition.
