Looks like the sane solution to me.

Another would be to, on the contrary, split the source packages, if
possible, to completely break the loop (not possible in your simplified
example, perhaps possible with the actual packages).

I think this rebuild step is a no go. Oh, that way madness lies. Is it
necessary? Is foo fully functional when built against libbar-bootstrap-dev?
