I agree, jruby is a mess, mostly because of me since I didn't have
almost any time during this release cycle to work on it.

I think jruby should be dropped from buster and a new libspring-java
upload should be prepared shortly, to disable jruby support in it.

It's not realistic to think that a new upstream release for jruby can
be prepared in a week and that will work to be well supported during
the next stable release life cycle.
