Your editor is somewhat reluctant to contribute to the flood; at this point, the amount of real information which is available is minimal while the amount of speculation is high.

Yeah... Sorry for editorializing. I was simply trying to insult the use of $oftware Patent$ (sorry, had to lease the dollar signs in there, as that's what software patents represent: greed).
