I was also thinking about packaging phpdocumentor because it's required
for an internal Deb package at my work, but didn't bother following it
up because all you have to do is put 'pear install foo' in the postinst
of anything that depends on it and you're done. No need for a Debian
package at all.
In fact, a Debian package of any PEAR module could be as simple as a
near-empty package with a 1-line postinst as above.
If there are other reasons for packaging PEAR stuff natively I'd be very
interested to hear it - I'd be happy to package phpdocumentor and other
PEAR stuff after all if there's a good reason to do it.
