Well, the only precedent we have for this is one which I myself set a
while ago with the subversion-apache2 package.

Personally, I think of it as a package which _is_ PHP, and happens to
interface with apache2, so I placed the bit which seemed more
significant to me first.

My guess is that naming it php-something is better than something-php,
because it will help people who go looking for just "php" to find it.
