[pkg-php-pear] Bug#779891: Useless in Debian

Package: php-compat
Version: 1.6.0a3-2
Severity: serious

[Filled as RC to see it autoremoved from Jessie if nobody disagrees.
 Please, do downgrade it or tag it as sid + stretch if you disagree.]

php-compat seems only useful to offer a compatibility layer in old
(pre-Squeeze) PHP version, and thus shouldn’t be of any use in any
current Debian release.

Only extplorer (removed from testing a year ago) depends on it, and
php-seclib (automatically) suggests it “to get phpseclib working on PHP
< 4.3.3”, so it is already safe to remove it from testing now.

I intend to follow up with an RM request once Jessie gets released if
nobody objects (but feel free to beat me to it), unless there is a good
reason to keep it as an extplorer dependency (and if extplorer actually
comes back in testing).
