yes... in addition to steve's comments about what the directories should be, i
think that the "pear" command should default to the local directories, and
that debian packages should either not use it, use it with certain flags to
specify the "debian directories", or use a "pear-debian" wrapper that does
also, how does pear handle dependencies between the two directories? i.e. if
we have the debian-installed classes in one directory with package A, and
locally install package B which depends on A, will it be smart enough at
install time (and later run time) to use the package A from the debian dir,
or will it download/need a copy from the local dir?
