The php-timezonedb package replaces the built-in timezone data with
the 'latest' available.
I decided to make it a Suggests so people are even more aware of it
and probably install it so the scripts work with accurate timezone
This change can of course be reversed and I won't object.

Actually, the whole timezonedb package will only be useful in stable
if the user also adds the volatile repository to the sources.list so
the package is updated ASAP and when stable updates are made (so the
php package itself doesn't require and update, only the timezonedb

I'm sorry if I'm not very clear expressing my POV right now, but I'm
tired right now (will try to clarify anything tomorrow).
