There is no rule for Debian channel packages (as pkg-php-tools can't
generate builddeps). So, you can keep pear-aws-channel and

For PEAR packages: Override can be used to remove this ugglyness (as
done with phpunit). Some solutions here:
- use debian/pkg-php-tools-overrides: this will only work the package itself
- install it as
/usr/share/pkg-php-tools/scripts/overrides/pear-guzzle-channel (from
the channel package): this will only work when this package is
installed. So this is ok for all packages coming from guzzle (as they
already builddep on the channel), but we should not forget to add the
pear-guzzle-channel to *every* package having a dependency on a guzzle
- add it to pkg-php-tools and make pear-guzzle-channel on the
corresponding version (or higher): this will handle all case, but
/usr/share/pkg-php-tools/scripts/overrides/common will bloat

Also, currenly pkg-php-tools doesn't support more generic way to
override. Something that can be done is to accept lines like this:
pear.example.org /^Example_(.*)$/ php-example-$1

NB: current common override:
