FWIW when php-openid was first packaged the then actual version was in
pear. I don't know why it was removed, but one of the TODO items
upstream was to get it back in officially.

I'm interpreting "pear" as used within the FP guidelines as a
packaging technology and not as a name of a collection. Otherwise we
would have to rename packages back and forth everytime there is a
change in the pear collection.

If the FPC agrees, then the technology vs collection nomenclature
should be added to clarify.
