First off, thanks Adrian for raising the concern. In general, at this
stage we don't like packages breaking other packages.

If I understand correctly, not having this patch in bullseye can be
considered a security regression.

I don't speak on behalf of the stable release managers, but I estimate
that they'll take fixes in stable for this issue too. So, if these bugs
aren't filed already (I would expect they may already be found and filed
because of rebuild campaigns or reproducible build failures), let's have
them filed (and fixed obviously). If they could be marked as blocking
this bug that would be great, such that we can judge what the progress
is to see when we want to let imagemagick into bullseye.
