I suppose you'd like the library to be able to give blowjobs, too. But like that S3TC is not going to happen, for what should be obvious reasons.
Eventually the patent will expire or somebody will officially release a 'promise not to sue' and then it would be accepted.
1997/10/02 + 20 years means we will not see this crap expire until 2017/10/02. I would be hoping for this patent to be marked invalid instead...
btw, what is up with the blowjob comment? You not getting enough?
