Bug#902920: diffoscope: be triggered by all the reverse-recommends

Package: diffoscope
Version: 98
Severity: wishlist
X-Debbugs-Cc: debian-ci@lists.debian.org

currently diffoscope is triggered only by its own dependency (python3,
python3-distutils, python3-distro, python3-libarchive-c, python3-magic)
and only one package that is not in that set, python3-pytest.

This is suboptimal: diffoscope relies *a lot* on the output of the
programs it is calling, and as such it has a tendency on breaking every
so often when that output changes.  Usually we notice such breakage by

I would like to have all the recommended packages in the
Testsuite-Triggers field, but I can't figure how to accomplish that
without duplicating the list of packages a 3rd time (one in d/control,
the other in diffoscope/external_tools.py).

Any hint from the CI team would be appreciated.
