This is an intermediate step to bumping the minimum PHP version to 7.x, which we will be looking at for v2. I would love to go ahead and drop 5.6 now, but 38.3% of all WordPress sites are on it, which to me is way too many people to exclude.

The only immediate effect of this change is that Travis CI builds will now be significantly faster.

We could go ahead and remove some compatibility code for PHP <= 5.5, but I don't really think it's necessary for v1. Let's track that at #63.

To avoid any ill effects from this change, we'll implement a minimum PHP version check in the migration plugin and block the installation for PHP <= 5.5.
