Hi Dmitry,

Looks like civicrm only build-depends on it, that seems strange (I wonder
how php-services-json is used during the build).

Looks like civicrm is using dh_linktree for embedding PHP classes, that
seems like a awful tool for the un-bundling job, you may wish to properly
load the needed classes instead. Since there is no actual dependencies, I
wonder how php-services-json is actually useful for civicrm currently.

Anyway, if you wish to see php-services-json stay, you should consider
taking over its maintenance, and ensure it’s ready for PHP 7.0.
