For me, I have several woody machines, that for client reasons, are
running Apache2, php4.3 and MySQL 4.X. None of which are available in
woody. Also, with another client, they have several custom packages,
(which frankly, I am trying to convince them to eliminate) of
apache/qmail/php and bits. Although those run on Redhat (now Fedora
legacy for me)
