Well as said, I'm really no PHP expert and basically just forced to use
it ;) ...

Well... I guess Stefan would have to push for this, as maintainer of
suhosin,... and probably it's difficult to get it merged,... see similar
problems with PaX<->Linux kernel.

Well it seems Stefan is listening now,... if all calm down a bit and be
friendly to each other again, the real goal could be reached:

More security for more end users.

I guess this is what Debian maintainers want (otherwise they wouldn't
have added the patch in the first place) and this is what Stefan wants
(otherwise he wouldn't have written it).

And it's not just the Debian users, that would profit, but also Ubuntu
and (probably) all other derivatives.
