I guess you need to read some of the related
papers/presentations/advisories/etc
related to a subject that has been under discussion for more 20+ years.

Answering your questions, as said before, the patch is NO FIX to the
problem, it's
just a workaround that (together with an appropiate architecture and
following well
know best practices for DNS deployment) *may* reduce the chances of becoming
a victim of the exploit.

The solution ? DNSSEC, I believe Paul is asking people interested to learn
more
about what needs to be done to get it done to discuss the subject in the
dns-operations list.
