Perhaps it is time to gather up a few thousand bucks and initiate a
re-exam (http://www.uspto.gov/web/offices/pac/mpep/documents/appxr_1_17.htm)?

If this truly locks away royalty-free use of DHTs and
content-addressable storage (CAS) via hashing until 2019... well... I
can't imagine most of us not being upset enough by it to toss in a few
bucks.  Maybe we could get PubPat (http://www.pubpat.org/) to
spearhead the challenge?
