personally, i'd like to see "on-tree" the modules shipped in the php
source produced by php source package, but there are some provisions:

- so close to release time means we don't want php producing new binary
  packages to interfere with etch fixes.
- there's more work than there are people/time available.
- the people who are available  may not have experience with the
  given extension and its implications.

however, my views don't necessarily reflect those of the php packaging
team.  i also don't  have the time/interest/energy to advocate for
this right now, as i'm pretty busy fixing problems with the existing
php packages.

so unless there are any new developments i'd suggest staying with what
is presently being done, and after etch maybe we can sit down and
revisit this.
