Again, “we’ll need to rebuild (no binNMU for arch:all
) every PHP class
anyway”. Anyway, given the current amount of build-dependency loops mostly
for running the test suite at build time (especially in the PHPUnit and
Symfony ecosystems), and that build profile [1] are not yet supported on
buildd for bootstrapping, we’re probably doomed to do a fair amount of
manual handling ;).

I’m not afraid to start team-uploading, especially the needed bits for the
PHPUnit and Symfony ecosystems, once we can. We might even be lucky enough
to be able to use a php7-ready pkg-php-tools within the current
(build-)dependency state and let the packages build on
buildd-infrastructure (crossing fingers ;).
