It's not in my plan changing php-5.3.10nb1 to php53-5.3.10nb1.

If we use such naming scheme, then we must think of those PHP's base
packages could be installed at the same time or not.

To be installed at the same time, it needs more changes and
verification that it really works.

Or it needs to add extra CONFLICTS to base language packages.

Anyway, current my work is completed except:

* moving lang/{php5,php53,php54} to lang/{php5,php53,php54}-base and
  moving meta-packages/php{php5,php53,php54}-extensions to

* Droping php5(PHP 5.2.x) support.  I plan it before pkgsrc-2012Q2.

I plan to commit with current status this night (13 May 12:00 UTC).

Best regards.
