No more vague patents on software. A vague description of an application of a concept to programming is not a "design", it's a daydream. If you want patent protection, you submit a fully working program, including a functioning build system. Then the patent office makes that available, and you only get to bring litigation against people who have actually downloaded that program and either used it or read it. If they had a parallel invention, no deal. If they wrote a program that did something similar but without using your exact source code as a reference, no deal.
