That kind of break will “just” prevent that use case (and still allow one to use php5.6-common for example, and still be stuck if it’s the only php*-common package installed while a package needs PHP7).

Since there’s no other tight coupling, then there’s nothing that roundcube package can actually do except perhaps add a patch that would check the PHP version in the prominent file and break early with message about PHP 8.0 not supported.
