Then, yes, an upgrade to 2.12 should be done. Using the new --release
option in javac 11, it can be built looking as if it were using JDK 8,
but JRE 8 is not really available any more either (I believe the idea
was to ship buster without src:openjdk-8), so it has to work under
JRE 11.

Well, yes, this is a good idea in general. However, it will most
likely be way too late for inclusion in buster, unless you have
it ready AND tested with all r-deps by end of this week or so.

Otherwise someone™ should decide whether the current state of
scala should be shipped with buster at all or that it’s too
buggy and should be excluded from the release and reintroduced
