I'm not sure what your question is (didn't see that email) but if you
just want to upgrade to etch and stay with apache 1.3 & php 4, then
you can just go ahead and upgrade to etch without any pinning of
apache/php versions.
The apache 2.2 and php 5 packages in etch are called "apache2" and
"php5" and they will not automatically replace your "apache" (1.3) and
"php4" packages.

probably depends on what you are doing with it, but I don't think
anything will go wrong that you cannot fix with ssh.
