New in Symfony 3.3: Improved the Profiler configuration panel

In the Symfony Profiler, the Configuration panel shows the value of some of the most important PHP and Symfony configuration options. This panel is specially useful for Symfony newcomers, because it helps them spot problems like not having enabled a PHP accelerator or having enabled a wrong set of bundles.
However, this panel lacked some important information. For example, we get a lot of issue reports caused by using a 32-bit PHP architecture instead of 64-bit. That's why in Symfony 3.3, this panel will include more information.
First, the PHP configuration has removed some rarely used options and now it displays three very common options: the architecture (32 or 64 bit), the locale and the timezone:
Second, the Symfony panel now displays more information about the version that you are currently using: whether the version is maintained/expired/unstable and when will the bug and security support end:

What about making the same thing for PHP?
I think not so many people know about PHP 5.6 active support ending in the end of 2016.
However, PHP doesn't provide this information in its own code. So we should make a HTTP request to get that information somewhere ... and I'm afraid that's a no-go for the web profiler.
And that same could be done for PHP.
Thanks for explaining.
