Good to know.

Why it doesn't update, and if it is fixable.

It is good just in maintainership terms: if we can solve the problem by it's 
root, we don't need to be dealing with patches any time the protocol changes.
We also need to contact the release team each time a package has to change in 
stable. And that also means me bugging some DD in the team to contact them :-(

Remember that freeze will happen next year, but that doesn't means that 
Squeeze will be released soon.

OTOH, no one else appears to have time enough to deal with this problem, and I 
do not use ICQ (nor I want to), so if you can help finding the problem, the 
better for everyone :)
