You are wrong. it is the same situation like when Smarty code changed and it meant WHMCS had to almost re write their software in version 6 to work with the new code.
Nothing to do with bad or lazy coding, just the coding changed, so plugins etc. had to be altered to work with PHP7, if plugins etc. were not altered they it through up errors as the coding was changed
