[pkg-php-pear] Are Symfony apps bound to composer, and not really compatible to Debian packages philosophy

I hope someone is reading here, beyond notifications about packages and

I'm thinking about the deployment of applications built with Symfony on
to Debian systems, as Symfony seems to be packaged.

But I'm wondering if this is really a viable option, since Symfony apps
seem to be very much tied to composer.

Is it possible to get rid of the vendors/ dir and still have autoloader
mechanisms working, provided all dependencies would be installed as
Debian packages ?
Maybe I need to RTFM more on composer...

I've reported a wishlist for some documentations along those lines in
#806903, FWIW.

Or maybe the symfony packaging is misleading, and it's just a matter of
PHP libs under the symfony umbrella, and symfony apps won't be supported
per se ?

Thanks in advance.
