Hi David,

Thank you again for the feedback.

OK. I'll keep that in mind. Thanks.

Clever. I did think they were annoyingly similar, but I didn't realize
just how easy it was to adjust the include path through PHPUnit.

Makes sense. I deleted the tag so that we can make a new one at the
time of upload. Hopefully that won't cause any issues.

Indeed. The upstream has been very fast to accept my patches. I'll
drop it from the package after the next upstream release.

Seems we'd need a package for carbon-cli to make it properly useful,
but carbon-cli actually also includes its own (strikingly similar)
executable anyway. I've thus now removed this one from the package
again and dropped the php-cli dependency.
