Sorry about the noise, I just noticed quite some php projects use /usr/bin/convert directly without using php imagemagick extension somehow (drupal, gallery 3, etc), and that required imagemagick to be installed in stead of imagemagick-common which is in dependency already. Please explain a little bit if you know the reason.

Debian php mailing list looks quiet, I almost feel bad to drop a stone in the water. :D
