> For some of the claims (including claim 1), you might want to look at:
> Jeff Hollingsworth and Ethan Miller, "Using Content-Derived Names for 
> Configuration Management," 1997 Symposium on Software Reusability (SSR 
> '97), Boston, MA, May 1997, pages 104–109. 
> <http://www.cs.ucsc.edu/~elm/Papers/ssr97.pdf>
> Publication date is May 1997, so it definitely predates the patent.  
> It's not the only paper, either.  Merkle's hash trees are from the 
> 1980's.

    Moments alone in the mirror have a playwright inside them; fragments
           of destiny fly out of those moments and into your eyes.
