Why not? It was in 5.2.x. It was removed from HEAD but not 5.x

We also have to keep in mind that the extension is maintained in
libming directly. All new stuff, improvements, etc. is done there and
then synced here. I wonder if it would make more sense to ask them if
they like to release their versions through pecl. Or redirect the
users to their versions.

About the 0.3-compatible release, we can take the 5.2.x branch as
there was no change until Frank commited the 0.4 version.

As it was never in PECL before, I don't see how it can break their checkout :)
About loosing the history in PECL, I don't have a problem with that.
But maybe Frank or other like to keep it...
