Why was php5-sqlite3 removed from lenny?

On Tue, 29 Apr 2008, packages php-sqlite3 and php5-sqlite3
were removed from unstable and testing (see Bug#478479).
However, I don't see exactly why...

Julien, you stated that PHP5 now supports SQLite3 natively
and with PDO, but it's not true (at least in version 5.2.6-5)
and, even if it where true, I think we should keep
backwards-compatibility with all the PHP scripts which are
using sqlite3_* functions.

Right now, there is no way to use sqlite3 with php5 in lenny.  So,
please, consider adding it back to the distribution (or offering
another solution).
