You have to consider upstream, because they aren't going to add
"Obsoletes: php5" to their php packages.

My only concern with php-5.1.6 in centosplus is that RHEL5-beta1 is
currently using 5.1.4.  Sure it's just beta1 and it may change, but if
it doesn't that will make for a slightly trickier upgrade for some
people at some point in the future.  For example the RHWAS php rpm is
newer than the RHEL5-beta1 rpm but has a lower version# (5.1.4-1 vs
5.1.4-8).  I am sure that is intentional so an upgrade to RHEL5 upgrades
