Yes, that large.
But the gap between version 0.9.4 and version 0.9.5 is several years
of development.
The two-year old RC bug about unclear licensing was fixed upstream in
the new version, and the old version is too old to backport the fix.

Also there are times when changes ICQ protocol break old IM's. And
sim-0.9.5 is considered currently the major version, so most fixes are
done there mainly.

Sorry, I don't understand what you mean. Which one is the "transitioning one"?
If you mean the sim-0.9.5~svn20080806-1 - then, as I understand,
waiting won't unblock it by itself, and the package will not return to
testing before lenny releases.
