So this is PHP 7.3 BC break and I can't find it in

Constructing SoapClient with no arguments can no longer be caught. It's very likely other classes are affected as well. Where can I read about this BC break?

PS: Sorry for not selecting soap package when creating issue, but I don't see it anywhere in a list

Test script:
try { new SoapClient(); } catch (Throwable $e) {} // PHP 7.2 no output, PHP 7.3 result:  Warning: SoapClient::SoapClient() expects at least 1 parameter, 0 given in php shell code on line 1

Well, the first parameter to SoapClient::__construct() is supposed
to be mandatory, this is not even a change that should be
documented, but rather the mentioned bug fix established the
proper behavior.

This bug report isn't reporting that PHP 7.3 started to complain about user not passing in required parameters. Both PHP 7.2 and 7.3 did do that already. Difference here is that this error cannot be caught since PHP 7.3 anymore.
