would you consider renaming internal name reported in php -m from "php-gtk" to 
"gtk" or "gtk2"?

a little background info.

i'm creating packages with "pear make-rpm-spec" using

and if all other extensions can be included as php-<extname>, then gtk extension 
name would be "php-php-gtk":

$ pear download Gtk2_EntryDialog
downloading Gtk2_EntryDialog-1.0.0.tgz ...
Starting to download Gtk2_EntryDialog-1.0.0.tgz (3,181 bytes)
....done: 3,181 bytes
File Gtk2_EntryDialog-1.0.0.tgz downloaded

$ pear make-rpm-spec --rpm-pkgname='php-%s' --rpm-depname='php-%s' 
Wrote RPM spec file php-Gtk2_EntryDialog.spec

$ grep ^Requires:.*php php-Gtk2_EntryDialog.spec 
Requires:       php-pear
Requires:       php-php-gtk

This would be a severe backwards compatibility break.  If there is ever a php-gtk 3.0 version perhaps we can change it there, but anything short of a major point release is out of the question for a change of this nature.
