It is in incoming queue for a few month and stucked, because there is no 
official php5 packages. I'm using pear-package for packaging php4 extensions, 

I don't agree with this unofficial Policy for PEAR modules. The packages are 
installed by `pear' command and it is completly wrong, because it is another 
package manager with own dependencies. In fact my pear-package tool is some 
converted from `pear' packages to `dpkg' packages, i.e. like alien for RPMs.

I think we should talk about PEAR modules on webapps@lists.debian.org.
