The problem is that, to make the package available and allowed for
upstream, the security team will require `php-fpm` to have the
`php-5.X.X` security patches.

Currently `php5_5.2.10.dfsg.1-1ubuntu2` is provided with ~46 patches,
among them suhoshin, CVE security fixes and other database related
patches.

On the other hand, there should be no problem with dependencies (fpm can
be run standalone in fact), and we can provide fpm using the latest
stable upstream (ignoring ubuntu release specific) version. In this
case, the package will not be part of a regular `php5` build, how I was
trying to make it.
