for the record, most/all of the unaddressed issues were either minor,
non-issues (requiring a malicious user), or unsupported (i.e. safe-mode
bypassing).  if you feel otherwise you should address the issues

i hope you've never been given the impression otherwise.  we spent
several weeks digging up and testing the fixes from php's cvs

anyway, i've had an upload prepared since the day before yesterday, i'll
upload it some time today.
