I know, I even dropped the versioning for the moment.

I have a confirmation from my PPA user that it solves the dependencies.


Folks, as soon as the new php-defaults, php5.6 and php7.0 leave NEW, I
would like to start uploading stuff to UNSTABLE. This will break a lot
of things (and we need at least an email to debian-devel before we
start), but we should start rolling, so we have a rock-stable PHP
release in stretch. It will take some time to polish the edge cases, so
sooner we start doing that the better.

Any objections?
