It seems like the internals of the Zend engine have changed dramatically
in PHP 7, which will cause our mapascript code to break. This is likely
a very important and huge issue, as so many mapscript users will be
affected. Has anyone started this work yet? We can now at least
co-ordinate this effort through that ticket. This will take a team effort.
