Perhaps you don't understand the scale of the problem. Please correct me if
wrong.

Revoking and regenerating the certs and keys, restarting services, is only the
beginning. Your users need to be told to generate new passwords. This exploit
has been in the wild for ~2yrs; any silently and previously compromised account
will be no less vulnerable post patch.

This is the long-tail of Heartbleed.
