Or don't use "testing" packages on production boxes in the first place.

It's far too easy to let such packages get stale and out of date and
subject yourself to security vulnerabilities.

IUS has had a maintained php-5.2 out for a long time now, there is
really no reason or excuse to have been using the years out of date 
junk that was in c5-testing.
