There is at least php(5)-pimple too.

I like your earlier proposal (using “php-ext-” instead of “php5”), it
makes it clear we’re dealing with an extension rather than some (PEAR or
Composer) class. I’d go with that unless someone objects.

Having to deal with it as an exception rather than making it the rule
doesn’t really sound like a good idea, what is preventing us from making
the naming explicit?
