The question is if there is actually a good reason for ipplan's 
postinst to do that. If libapache2-mod-php5 is pulled in by the 
dependencies, its postinst will activate mod_php in apache2 and 
ipplan doesn't need to do anything. If php5 is already installed but 
is not enabled, the admin has manually disabled it and probably had 
some reason for that. I don't think ipplan should restore the 

If you add it, a2enmod is preferred.

For mod_actions and mod_cgi, it is less obvious what ipplan's postinst 
should do. I guess both ways are acceptable.
