Old-style PHP packages vanishing

Your friendly service announcement:

The PHP Herd announces that the old-style PHP packages, which were unsupported and deprecated for months, are finally going away.
After months of work, the team considers the new dev-lang/php package and the related dev-php[4,5]/ categories fully ready for production use, and encourage all users to upgrade.
Helpful informations can be found at the PHP project's pages, along with a HOWTO regarding the migration to dev-lang/php.
The old-style PHP packages (dev-php/php, dev-php/php-cgi, dev-php/mod_php, dev-php/PECL-*, and older dev-php/PEAR-* packages) will be package.masked on Wednesday, 19 April 2006, and removed from the Portage tree about a month later.
