In my opinion, since we have time, I'd like to drop this delta and get
this in-sync w/ Debian. That'd mean two things here:

a) Check if we can safely drop the delta; i.e. the package in Debian
builds w/o FTBFS, et al, in Ubuntu.
b) If we still need the delta, send MRs, debdiffs, et al, to Debian.

Athos, send MRs to Debian in such cases and let us know via
#debian-php (the place where we once talked) and I can sponsor your
uploads there. This way we'll reduce the technical-debt we've gained
over the months now. And I'd really want that.

Or let me know as well. I could certainly help given I know the
doctrine/symfony bits quite well by now. :)

I could assist with the circular dependency hellholes or/and with the
docs or/and with anything you might have questions about/around. Feel
free to even assign things to me. :)
