[php-maint] Bug#805015: Please package version 5.6 for Wheezy

Package: php5
Version: 5.4.45-0+deb7u2
Severity: wishlist

On updating to latest version, the following is reported :

php5 (5.4.45-0+deb7u2) wheezy-security; urgency=medium

  * PHP 5.4 has reached end-of-life on 14 Sep 2015 and as a result there
    will be no more new upstream releases.  The security support of PHP
    5.4 in Debian will be best effort only and you are strongly advised
    to upgrade to latest stable Debian release that includes PHP 5.6 that
    will reach end of security support on 28 Aug 2017.

As Wheezy is still a supported version, could a supported version (5.6) of php5-* be packaged for it ?
