How does your problem "make[s] the package in question unusable or
mostly so, or causes data loss, or introduces a security hole allowing
access to the accounts of users who use the package"?

What's your point? mod-fastcgi is a third party application not shipped
with the Apache core package and never was. In fact, mod_fastcgi does
not even have the same upstream. Thus, this is not a bug in the Apache
package itself and you're yelling at the wrong address. We, as Apache
maintainers cannot change anything here.

Moreover, I don't understand your problem after all. mod_fastcgi is
still in Wheezy [1] and you don't need mod_fastcgi at all in order to
run PHP-FPM with mod_fcgid.

Sorry, what?
