 Wow, you have really dug into the depths here!  Great to see, but sucks
 that this is still so hard.  Maybe the short term answer is using
 _jarsigner_?  That will introduce an annoying reproducibility issue since
 _jarsigner_ includes the full Java major/minor/bugfix/patch version in the

 As for fixing apksigner, I'm up for getting fixing into Debian, I maintain
 that package.  It should be possible to get fixes into both stretch and
 buster, if they are not too big.  I think that would also be possible for
 opensc-pkcs11, but i'm not the maintainer of that package, so harder to
 promise anything.

 Maybe there is already a fix upstream, did you look at
