All of:

- python-acme
- python-certbot
- python-certbot-apache
- python-certbot-nginx
- python-josepy

would need to be added/updated like they were in Stretch. (The new python-josepy package comes from it being split out of python-acme.)

We have spent a lot of time upstream keeping compatibility with older versions of our dependencies and not adding new dependencies with the goal of making situations like this easier.

With that said, these Debian packages have switched from Python 2 to Python 3 since the last time they were updated in jessie-backports. The switch to Python 3 would either need to be undone (as we have kept compatibility with Python 2 upstream) or Python 3 versions of some of our dependencies would need to be added. I am not sure how many packages would be affected if the latter approach was taken.
