Well, if I read that correctly (and I _hate_ lawyerese), that's the Federal 
Circuit court's reversal of the lower court's decision, but not the Supreme 
Court's ruling.  Did the SC indeed hear this case?  The kitware link mentioned 
the SC being _asked_ to review this case, but they can decline to do so, case 
in which the case you linked would be the last word on this matter.

Anyway, I really, really hate having to think, even for one stupid second, 
about this kind of stuff.  And since this has already drifted off-topic and 
over my legalese yearly allowance, I'll just go back to working on Prabhu's 
threading ipython patch.  At this point, even the joys of mixing threads, 
exceptions and 3 different GUI frameworks in python look very, very appealing :)

Cheers,
