I can’t see such difference between the currently packaged phpseclib and
php-math-biginteger. The namespaces change is supposed to happen in the
next 1. or 2. branch of phpseclib, but the latest upstream version as
available in Debian, is not yet inside this new namespace.

Ha, that reminds me of the “good old times” and

Not yet, sorry.

One we’ll have to take care anyway, but I don’t intend to start it before
upstream publish a stable release with the new namespase (not even an
alpha has been published yet).

Sure, I’ll had the others too, but the previous question still stands:
