Composer 2 on App Platform

PHP applications are installing with Composer 1, which is a lot slower than Composer 2. Composer 1 is also in basic end of life.

Composer 2 support should be out very early in January :)

UPDATE: Composer 2 is now supported. App Platform will use the same version of Composer that generated the app’s composer.lock file.
