the very first prequisite for this is to have a up-to-date version in
our development version. Let's check:

>> rmadison libnet-sip-perl
libnet-sip-perl |     0.39-1 | hardy/universe | source, all
libnet-sip-perl |   0.45.3-1 | intrepid/universe | source, all

this means that intrepid already ships a much newer version. However we
have rather strict rules for updating stable releases, see for details.

Since there are no bugs filed against that package, I currently don't
have the impression that this package qualifies for an SRU.

You could subscribe to bug mail to both packages and start receiving bug
reports of the package. You could also provide updated packages
for hardy in your private PPA and encourage users to add your PPA to
their /etc/apt/sources.list.

If you have any further questions, feel free to ask!
