If I understand corrently you want to backport fixes. Well, this one is
probably hardly worth it. It is kind of "using root to gain root"
(well, s/root/asterisk/g). A user with an ability to exploit this can
already order Asterisk do do practically anything.

OTOH, 1.0.8 has quite a few other fixes which may be worth backporting.
What are the user-visible changes of 1.0.8? How much potentially
dangerous is an upgrade?
