Subject: [gentoo-dev] New categories: dev-php4 and dev-php5

As the feedback from my overlay for mixed PHP4/PHP5 support has been 
entirely positive, I'd like to move this work into the Portage tree 
later this week.

This will create two new top-level categories:
- dev-php4 for PHP4 extensions
- dev-php5 for PHP5 extensions

PHP extensions are additional APIs for PHP, and are compiled against the 
PHP scripting engine.

After a short period of transition, the dev-php/PECL-* packages (and two 
others) will be marked as moved to the corresponding packages in dev-php4.

Best regards,
