It was discovered in Jan but Ubuntu and Suse both released new packages
yesterday so i presumed these where a new batch. I know my debian etch
server has updated these packages almost weekly this year.  

Perhaps it's time php stopped adding new features and did a full
security review or at least pulled all the crap out of the main package
and dynamically include packages with a method to allow admins to
disallow their use.
