In order for this to work, any ideas brought up would have to
1. teach every element of the claims in the patent application.
2. "the elements have to be arranged as required by the claim"
3. "the identical invention must be shown in as complete detail as i
contain in the ... claim"
If you can't beat them, arrange to have them beaten.
