how you see php future in pld-th?

i see now that we should merge 5.5 -> php, 5.3 -> php53, so we would 
have php52, php53, php (5.2, 5.3, 5.5) versions
and when 5.6 is released, php.spec would be 5.6

the reason for still keeping php name would be that i version control my 
/etc, so php dir rename is annoying as have to manually migrate vcs data 
from one
dir to another to preserve history.

and for most of people who just want to upgrade to "latest" switching 
package names is annoying as you have to install all packages with 
different name and migrate configs
