Nginx buffer overflow

A buffer overflow has been discovered in recent versions of the HTTP server Nginx.
Hacker News user jmnicolas pondered out loud: “I wonder if this discovery is a result of OpenBSD switching its focus from Apache to Nginx?”
It took me one minute to understand what ey meant. I was actually wondering why OpenBSD would be putting buffer overflows in Nginx, now that they are done putting buffer overflows in Apache. I mean, surely there is room for one more buffer overflow in Apache?
The analysis of what this means about this industry and/or me is left as an exercise to the reader.
