I am referring to http://bugs.debian.org/670945#26, where you proposed
to solve the problem in /etc/apache2/mods-available/php5.conf.

If the core problem in http://bugs.debian.org/670945 is that mod_negotiation
needs any media type regardless of its content, then I would prefer the problem
to be solved in the apache or php packages.

By the way, for professional reasons, I will be hard to reach for the next two
