I'm sure patches would be appreciated ... it's not easy code.

No, that's already being tried (as you should see from the top of
update_output.txt) and doesn't work for some mips-related reason. I've
adjusted the hint to try to make the reason more obvious.

    libbatik-java/i386 unsatisfiable Depends: j2re1.4 | j2re1.3 | java2-runtime

Those packages aren't in Debian; we need contrib overrides for this (or

As Andrew said, debian-release is a better place for this kind of thing
