I've been trying to get a patch together for 1.3.x but the portability 
stuff keeps biting me - accurately detecting presence of getpgid is 
harder with the 1.3 build system even on Linux (it's hidden without 
_GNU_SOURCE defined, but helpers/TestCompile still detects it... etc).

So I'd say stick with the existing pid-table stuff for 1.3 - I tested it 
with mod_scribble and it prevents the exploits tested there.
