FWIW, there are absolutely no differences when removing those two breaks,
even with resolver debugging enabled.

I was just saying this on IRC:

    “should I try to reinstate ca-certificates-java's old dependencies and
    compare? from my initial bug report, that's the change in the archive
    that led to the regression.”

and mentioned earlier that given the old dependencies have an OR anyway,
we shouldn't be introducing an uninstallable package. This would have
the nice effect of being a solution that can be implemented in hours
instead of days (given openjdk-8's build time). This doesn't mean we
should jump the gun anyway…

I'll report back.
