There two main reasons for this change:
* Active support of PHP 5.x ended on January 2017, security support will
end on December 2018. Packages in the main repository should be
supported for at least 2 years, this means until first quarter of 2019
for the upcoming v3.6.
* php7 and its extensions are currently in the community repository, so
we can't use single abuild for both php5-* and php7-* packages (as we
do for Python and Lua packages).
This change was suggested by @vakartel, approved by @ncopa, @kaniini, and
