Yes, that can be done. But ... do we do that for other languages?
Anyway I'll setup a wiki page and when you ack the php5 5.4 upload, I'll mail
the package maintainers and ask them to test their packages individually.
PHP 5.4 will be blocked from transitioning to wheezy until final is out and
can be blocked until we gather enough tested packages. How does that sounds?
