Probably not, but reverting the single change that triggered the
regression looks like a safe way to unbreak this situation. Especially
when the said change only happened many months after the relevant
package was removed from the archive (2017-05-31 vs. 2016-04-22)…

This is incorrect. See my reply in:

Tentative release date minus days isn't the time to deal with circular
dependencies IMHO.

Not possible since I'm not a member of pkg-java, and since you don't
seem to allow non-member access:

git format-patch -1 attached though.
