Why not, is this some kind of distros-can't-be-trusted-to-run-patch 
reaction after the Debian OpenSSL PRNG incident?  Blah.  

1) we-the-committers failed to do anything useful about this bug
2) Stefan has a patch 
3) having more test data from people running that patch is useful

If you don't want people *patching* the *Apache source code* (god
