That's a good point.

Perhaps we[a] could come up with different naming schema?

Options I could think of:

1. php-<source>-<name>, e.g. php-pecl-twig or php-github-remi-json
(similar to go)
2. pecl-<name>, e.g. pecl-twig vs php-twig
3. solve those as they come in as I haven't found anything else than


a. and in we I really mean that's your decision as PEAR and PECL teams,
but I would like to see a binNMUability of those packages when new PHP
minor version is out, so php7.0-twig is the worst choice from my
perspective as it requires a lot of manual work.

b. apt-cache show $(apt-cache search php5 | sed -ne 's/
.*//;s/^php5/php/p') | grep ^Package:
