I'm not sure I understood this response.  The only reason I mentioned
applications was to point out that there are a few packages which
start with php* that aren't PHP modules, but that the two packages I
was questioning explicitly do not fit into that category.  Maybe I
shouldn't have mentioned them at all, because it seems to have
confused the issue.  Do I need to re-post my original message
without that mention?

My understanding is that phpSmug and phpFlickr are indeed PHP modules,
no different from php-Smarty.  Since they're not pear or pecl modules,
they fall under "Other packages should be named
php-PackageName-%{version}-%{release}.%{arch}.rpm; %{arch} can be
"noarch" where appropriate."
