[php-maint] Bug#821523: libownet-php: PHP 7.0 Transition

Hi Vincent,

there's currently open issue for PHP 7.0 support:
https://github.com/swig/swig/issues/571 you might want to subscribe to

This bug will become serious as php5 will get removed and the packages
will start to FTBFS, so I am afraid it might come to removing the php
support for a moment. It might be reinstated later when swig adds
support for PHP 7.
