Nicolas, did you get another source of information for fixing the
> “suggest” part of the composer.json file?

Yes: after reading composer's doc more carefully,

lib-* is guaranteed by composer to be version-comparable, with the same
version pattern used by packages, whereas
ext-* are generally not version comparable (because not every extension
expose a version number).

as I don't care for version number in the suggest part, I choose ext-*,
but pcre 7.3 is required, so lib-*

Although this looks more "semantic" to me, I would be ok to replace it with
ext-pcre if this is equivalent and fixes your bug.
Or you could fix the your tool :)
