Debian php5 source package ships three binary packages which lie in
Universe: php5-interbase, php5-imap and php5-mcrypt. They depend on
packages present in Universe (firebird2-dev, libc-client-dev and
libmcrypt-dev respectively), so they can not be included in Main.

Such packages are not present in Gutsy, though. Since some packages
depend on them, they should be included into archives manually.

Since these packages should be keep in sync with php5 source package, it
could be useful to define a strategy in order to maintain them without
extra-work for MOTUs. Can a "php5-universe" source package be useful?
