Not really.

There are 2 bugs:

   1. The code is wrong.
   2. The code is in the wrong place.

Given that APR is more or less frozen for httpd 2.0, it is critical to 
some of us (e.g. me the producer of the patch), to fix (1) in 2.0 (and 
ideally 2.1 as well) *now*.  Fixing (2) in 2.1 at some point would be nice.

Whatever I guess -- I'm hand-stitching in this and other patches into 
all binaries I build anyway, so if it takes a long time for those not 
using my binaries to benefit, I guess I should not care.
