This is no longer necessary, that's right. A common strategy I've seen is 
that: if you have php4 alternates, you can just leave them there for lenny, 
since it may be a bit easier for those wishing to use it with backported 
php4, but that there's no real use for adding them on new packages.

So if you already have them: you're free to remove them now, but if they don't 
bother you, you can leave them in place until after lenny has been released.
