You don’t need to bump epoch (especially on source package and every 
binary ones) just to temporarily bump version of one binary package.

IIRC, last time such transition was pushed in an uncoordinated way like 
this (7.3 -> 7.4), it took months to handle. Can we please not repeat 
this painful experience for such an expected bigger transition (7.4 -> 8.1)?

The current status is holding some of us to actually work on this 
transition (e.g., I’m not able to properly build and push new versions 
expected to actually work with recent PHP, and have little view of the 
remaining issues that could be spotted via autopkgtests in experimental, 
since little or no bugs were raised on affected packages).
