perhaps i'm missing something, but if this patent is valid (which i'd
bet almost any amount of money it is not) than a lot more than just
DHT's anc CAN's are affected, aren't they?

this is "calling a datum by its digest", or self certifying
identifier, and is enmeshed in more secure protocols and systems than
i can count.

how is this even novel?  ... i must be missing something.
