From what's outlined on SCOTUSblog, it kind of sounds like they're concerned about software object code. I imagine there's no chance the court would decide that software patents are invalid, but maybe in the worst case it would still be possible for OSS programmers to work on patent-impacted projects by modifying/committing only non-impacted sections of the software and by avoiding any U.S.-hosted mirrors of projects or binaries?
