Comment (by danielbachhuber):

 For the next person to run into this issue with their Composer
 dependencies, I thought of a temporary workaround:

 "config": {
     "platform": {
         "php": "7.0"

 If you haven't seen this before, this tells Composer to behave as though
 it's updating your dependencies on a PHP 7.0 system. For us, the only
 bundled change ended up being `Downgrading symfony/event-dispatcher
 (v4.2.8 => v3.3.6)`, so it's a reasonable compromise. However, I did have
 to also `"phpunit/phpunit": "^6 || ^7"`.

 Lastly, I found https://github.com/JakubOnderka/PHP-Parallel-Lint to be a
 neat tool for seeing which files failed to lint. If you're on a Mac
 versions-on-mojave-with-homebrew here are instructions] on how to install
 PHP 7.0 via Homebrew. Once you've done so, linting looks like this:

 parallel-lint ./ -p /usr/local/Cellar/php at 7.0/7.0.33/bin/php
