This should have been fixed in unstable for a long time, I pinged the maintainer

is not sustainable at all. imagemagick only saw one maintainer upload in 2020...

Yes, we should not revert this and rather fix fallout in the handful
of affected packages. This patch e.g. prevented the exploitability of
and will prevent other issues in the future.
