Upstream maintains and releases Symfony at a hole - see:

Additionally so called subtree splits are provided for each component,
but packaging each single one based on that on its own is not the way we
should maintain them in Debian. Besides that those subtree splits mainly
exists for Composer (as far as I know) and some kind of automatism
updates them magically.

It really sound's promising. From my current perspective especially
milestone 2 (the composer related things). At the moment I'm manually
adding the dependencies listed in each of those composer.json to
d/control for each single binary package. Having some help from
dh_phpcomposer here would be great.
