i've looked at you commit, and they look good. But:
The way php-defaults currently works will drop any versioned
dependency (as 18 is >= 5.x or 7.x).

This side of the dep is probably only used for test. Could we use
build profiles?

I'm not fan of the 2nd solution, but given the amount of work of the
manual one...
