though, Jeff has apparently removed himself from the list.

Though this one does seem a bit odd, IBM has a _lot_ of patents on
things and stuff. This one seems to have been filed a year ago, and
Dojo is not mentioned anywhere therein.  It also seems there is a lot
of prior art on this topic, but I'm in no position to discuss patent
law as IANAL, and haven't read any of the 'gory details'

Regards,
Peter
