Followup-For: Bug #823515


during a test with piuparts I noticed some strange behavior w.r.t. the
/usr/bin/phar alternative. After an upgrade from stretch to sid (which
both have the same version of php7.0-cli), the /usr/bin/phar alternative
is not cleaned up. This is not reproducible by just installing the
package in either sid or stretch. An indication from the logfile is
php-common diverting /usr/bin/phar on the upgrade from stretch to sid
*after* php7.0-cli had set up an alternative there in stretch already.
This most likely seems to clash in some way, so there should be a
Depends on php-common (>= 1:37) to ensure the diversion is in place
before the alternative is set up.
