I believe the 'php4' prefix is specific to packages that are derived from
the php4 source package; AFAIK, most of the PHP-related packages that
come from other sources do not share this prefix.

I would prefer not to see package names encode the version information of
*other* packages.  libphp-adodb seems quite reasonable to me.

As for using ODBC with Oracle, does Oracle ship an ODBC driver for Linux?
