In the case of the apache shared memory ownership, I mentioned the issues
initially in an email sent Sun, 11 Nov 2001 to the apache security
address, and there was some general discussion, but nothing came of it.

In general however, I think that any approach that gets the information
known is useful. There are definitely many approaches, but any that allows
an issue to be disclosed is at least partially good.
