[php-maint] Bug#860337: php7.0: No transition path from php5 to php7.0 when upgrading to stretch

for a little bit of additional information, the mysql to mariadb
transition decided to use a meta-package called default-mysql-server to
provide a path for the transition during the upgrade.

Since php5 and php7 have a good number of differences, it might be
desirable to have some kind of similar "opt-in" upgrade path so that one
could install some package in jessie before performing the upgrade to
stretch and have php packages get automatically upgraded to 7.0

one other detail that would be nice would be to add a note about this
upgrade path in the release notes:
