I think it was just a source rename - presumably to allow multiple major
versions of libjgrapht-java the archive (e.g. like we have multiple
versions of libservlet2.X-java)

I would consider this very likely. Michael has been very difficult to
reach lately and the last I heard from him was that he was busy with
real life stuff.

libjgrapht0.6-java is a "public" pkg-java package, so as long as you are
a part of the pkg-java team, you are free to become its maintainer.
Personally I encourage you to do it - especially if Steffen is busy and
you have the time to spare.

Unfortunately I do not know anything about the package here in question
nor cdk. However, you can certainly prepare 0.8 and get it uploaded
under a different name (libjgrapht0.8-java would be a sane choice).
If cdk can be built with the new jgrapht, then we can just get the old
one RMed.
