Upstream is explicit that php5 is not supported for the 1.x branch. Debian
even has an old version of libphp-jpgraph 1.x because newer are not free

This means that we basically have two options:
1) Remove libphp-jpgraph altogether.
2) Patch up libphp-jpgraph to be php5-compatible ourselves and maintain
libphp-jpgraph perpetually, since there's no upstream.

It all depends on someone willing to do (2). I've done some work for this
package in the past but am not interested in doing it.

Christian, what do you think?
