For one, php-laravel-framework depends on Symfony 4. There are newer
upstream versions available that use Symfony 5 though. I'll try to
reserve time for that upgrade sometime soon then.

My plan was otherwise to wait for Laravel 9 (LTS), but that's
targeting Symfony 6 even. I'll see how feasible it'd be to patch it
for Symfony 5 compatibility once it's released.
