Given interesting news that hit the light of day, early next week, most
likely.  Depends on how long it takes someone to hack the pid table for
the parent processes out of the scoreboard and into the parent process's
local hash.  I have a laundry list of other issues in front of me, and
my clients aren't silly enough to run untrusted code - so I'm not likely
to be 'that author'.

apr rolled in a day or two at most, httpd this weekend as apr and that
fix are authored, so that puts us out to a release early-mid next week.
At least that's what I'm hoping happens.

This 'vulnerability' on bugtraq only affects machines which run untrusted
php/modperl scripts or modules, etc, and I'm pretty certain php has more
restrictive mode for sanity that is immune to this vector.
