Bob, what's your opinion on this?
You also had a conversation with Remi on irc, but I don't remember what was
the decision if any.
The PR from Remi for imagick to support 5.6 doesn't seem so bad (as in:

Whats the current plan? Removing the internal BC break, or keeping it and
accomodating the affected parts in php-src?
