Yes, I understand that. I apologize for not being clear. It seems like
the upstream maintainer is stating that phpunit failures with PHP7 +
1.2.0 are expected -- so we'd need to update the tests in the Debian &
Ubuntu packages.

Yep, I'm aware of this and am in contact with Ondřej on the progress in
Ubuntu for the same transitions (I've got phpunit bootstrapped at this
point but am hitting another build-depends cycle).

Right, because, I'm expecting that the php-proxy-manager package is
still depending on PHP5, rather than PHP7.

Ok, thanks, I'll take a look!

Ok, I'll look at your version when it's in the VCS tomorrow.
