I am about to move the packages from [staging] into [testing] (have to 
wait for the ruby rebuild to be finished). Good news for geoip and uwsgi 
users as we were able to package patched versions which are now 
compatible with PHP 7.

This means when these are moved to [extra] the following have to be 
dropped for now:

graphviz' PHP bindings

We might also see a php-mongodb package which is not a drop in 
repalcement for php-mongo though.
