crap, that's just... great...  so much for externalizing modules being
a convenience, eh?

4) bump the "upstream version" and ship a new orig.tar.gz with both
trees in seperate directories, and build accordingly.
5) if the difference isn't too huge between the two, create the second
build directory via a patch against the first
6) compile the modules into the php engines themselves (which would
affect dependencies)

as i've said before, i think that (3) is the best option on my book
for the modules that were previously split off the main tree.  if that's
impossible w/out going through NEW, it might be worth looking at (5) as
an alternative.  (6) is also worth a look if the dependency addition
is zero or minimal.

okay, noted.  if i can find a way to avoid NEW doing option (3) i'll go
ahead and do it.  if i get some kind of assurance that NEW won't prevent
us from getting all this crap to testing i may still do it.  otherwise,
i can't promise anything before you get back, as we probably want to
discuss things a bit more first before committing to a course of action.
we'll see...
