Yes, wow.  And what are the implications?

It is an application, which isn't the same as a patent. It's not clear to me that it would be granted because, if I recall correctly, it has to not be obvious how to do it to someone who practices in the field.  My patents are from 2000 and 2001, so it's been a while that I've been through the patent execution process.  That being said, it may be a bit of a heads-up, be on the lookout.
