Sounds like a good idea.

I think I can prepare a package based on the Debian calibre 5.2.0
version in sid/testing, that reverts the Sip5 changes.
I will install a focal vm and see if building works out of the box.

Is this ok a plan for you or do you want/need anything else in this
area right now?
All the best
