James: how easily could we backport the GhostScript change to
OCRmyPDF 6.x series?

If not easily, and you still think that pikepdf's API will stabilise in
time for Debian's upcoming stable release, maybe OCRmyPDF should just be
kept out of testing for the timebeing.

Paul: does preventing regressions in testing take precedence?  If so,
this bug should be reassigned to ghostscript and raised to RC severity.
But ISTM that ocrmypdf is less important, so ghostscript should be
allowed to migrate and ocrmypdf should be kicked out.
