In in case anyone is really interstested. I have the patent history
of both patents held by Conexant/Rockwell. It's pretty vague, dry,
boring stuff to read.
I bought them a while ago with the intention of issueing a request
for re-exam claiming that there was sufficient prior-art. But the
with some "unofficial" talks with a Patent laywer doing this could
actually strengthen the patent if it were to pass again. So I think
I'll just wait and let the big boys hash this one out.

Dave, Originally I was all about this (thats why I bought the
patents) but the Dmitry Sklyarov case kinda took the wind out of my
sails. Since I live in the US.
