I understand your position. But if this can help changing your mind,
please note that the 0.116.1 jack package in sid has been tested by
several 64 Studio [0] users running lenny/sid and reports have all
been positive.

It would be a real pity to release lenny with the buggy 0.109.0,
again, the upstream developers deprecate it:

"I am happy to announce the release of JACK 0.116.0. This is an
important release, because it fixes all the problems reported with
0.115.6 and now makes 0.109.2 completely obsolete. Nobody should be
using 0.109.2 within a few weeks, and even that is only to allow for
distributions to update." [1]
