I'm don't know enough to discuss the pros or cons of the choices made
by Piotr Roszatycki when preparing his PHP5 packages, but shouldn't
one also take into account the amount of time (about 10 months) we
have been waiting for PHP5 packages?

I mean --- people are waiting for official Debian packages, so perhaps
these packages could be used until the official PHP group within
Debian gets some packages done.
