Comment (by sebastic):

 Replying to [comment:1 jimk]:
 > 1. !MapScript is updated to work with PHP 7 in a way that doesn't
 significantly change the API.

 That should be doable, although in the [https://lists.osgeo.org/pipermail
 /mapserver-dev/2016-April/014840.html related discussion on the mapserver-
 dev list] Thomas Bonfort expressed preference to switch to SWIG for PHP
 !MapScript when it gets support for PHP 7
 ([https://github.com/swig/swig/issues/571#issuecomment-211785179 SWIG #571
 Support for PHP 7]).

 PHP !MapScript doesn't have an active maintainer currently, so people
 relying on it are strongly encouraged to help port PHP !MapScript to PHP

 With the following patch can get you started, but it doesn't handle the
 `zend_object_value` changes and `zend_register_internal_class_ex` yet:
