I agree 54 should be default. Not sure how you want to handle an upgrade 
with php.ini but best practice when updating to a major version is to 
scrap the existing ini and start from scratch with new file. Probably good to 
install as php.ini-production-5.4 and php.ini-development-5.4 or 
php54/php.ini-production etc, in share/examples, with a note after pkg build?
