what about the recursion bug affecting php (probably all apps using pcre)

Are bugs like RH bug #133891 (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=133891), PHP bug #24460 (http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=24460), PHP bug #26171 (http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=26171) and PHP bug #27070 (http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=27070) going to be addressed?

In short: with some match patterns and data from 1000 bytes pcre causes php (and probably others) to crash. The problem seems to be that "PCRE uses recursion to handle subpatterns and indefinite repetition" (from PHP bug #24460 (http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=24460)).
