I'm in the process of testing the current trees and have already received 
confirmation from Bjoern that with the apr fixes *already* in the apr tree,
plus the patch you reposted on dev@httpd leaves us no further open fd's
beyond 0,1,2 when invoking CGI scripts.

That confirmation (I've asked him to fw: to the httpd list) gives me enough
confidence to call 0.9.2 ready - subject to tagging, testing, tarring and
the final +1's for release.

Of course Netware and OS2 should also be reviewed for the correct
behavior - but we've already got the 80/20 problem licked, and I'm unaware
of any mass-vhosters using Netware or OS2 to invoke untrusted CGIs.

If Netware or OS2 have any inheritance bug fixes, we can pick those up
on the word of those platform maintainers later tonight/tommorow morning.
