It depends on what does the SC means by "abstract ideas." If they means:

Abstract ideas are concepts that need to be visualized, as they cannot be illustrated through concrete (real) examples. In a simple way, explaining the progression of logic in a (computer) program will be possible only if the reader can correctly visualize (imagine) it in his mind.

Then the implementation of an idea to a specific purpose makes it non-abstract and therefore can be patented. So it's not really the end of all software patents. Otherwise, further litigation might be required to establish a sound definition.
