Well, if all the extensions that are moved out are moved to a similar
structure in the pear CVS module: php4/ext/hyperwave ->
pear/ext/hyperwave, it should only be a matter of copying some files
and running autoconf before configure.  For this we'd need a shell
script, C program or similar though.  I'm in favor of a shell script,
maybe with some C helpers if it turns out to be a problem finding
lynx, wget or something similar on people's systems.
