i am resuming work on packaging wp-cli (http://wp-cli.org/) for Debian,
and i notice that since my initial work on the Debian package for this
software a while ago, upstream - like some other PHP projects - have
switched to using Composer (http://getcomposer.org/) for dependency
management, from the previous PEAR packaging.

i see a post on this ML about composer and debian, but no further
comments after January 2013
and i see no mention of Composer in WNPPs: my understanding is that
Composer is mainly considered (by upstream) as a tool for per-project
dependency management, but thinking about e.g. SaaS installs where we
may have one project/app per virtual machine, leveraging Composer's
metadata for Debian packaging of some PHP libs sounds interesting: is
any developer on this list working on integration of Composer or
libraries using Composer with Debian?
