Hi David,

As I wrote yesterday, I've done some work on this and upgraded to 2.7.5
as well as done some general improvements, based on your suggestions.
Thus I'm replying to your earlier mail...

I agree. I thought about working on this today, but then skipped it out
and focus on getting a new Symfony version ready instead. But I keep
this in mind for a future release.

Yes, and this was the main reason why I introduced a new way to deal
with vendor/autoload.php. The previous way we've done this had the issue
to loaded quite some files from system paths and not the (correct ones)
from the src.

Please forget about review/2.7.4. I just pushed a review/2.7.5 branch.
It contains your all changes, except "f9b7643 Prefer removal on clean
target". This time I did not forget about d/clean and have done that
this way in 4749789, making f9b7643 obsolete.
Please note that I updated your commit message for "Drop now useless
header" (6deb454 -> 1defe47), since I dropped (details below)

You're totally right. To prevent such noisy diffs in future I added
"a37c60d Remove prefixed 'NNNN-'-numbering for Debian patches".
I liked your idea to maintain the autoloads directly in d/, thus this
time it is no longer done using patches, but with two simple files:
d/autoload.build.php and d/autoload.DEP-8.php.
The new b-d php-swiftmailer is actually really needed. I made an
explicit commit for it.

It would be great if you find the time to review the review/2.7.5
branch, update the changelog, merge into master, etc. and do an upload
to the Debian archives, if you think it is ready. If you find something,
please let me know. I might be able to do some more work on it during
the week.
