Fwiw, I'm not sure if there might be some additional subsequent
bootstrapping needed between 9.0 and 9.5. Debian had several versions
of phpunit in experimental as they worked through rebuilding
dependencies. So far though, the bootstrapping has only required
bypassing testsuites of dependencies that pop up.
Note there is also one new package added, I unfortunately didn't note
the name and it's off update_excuses now, but it'll probably show up.
Since all this is in universe, I don't think that'll cause issues.
