Note that the ISA has a member company list [1] (save a copy...), 
several of whom are supposedly pro-linux, and others whose businesses 
are pretty closely tied to things like apache+php.  It might be worth 
IFSO querying them if it is really their official position that the 
software patent directive as proposed by the European Council is what 
they want, seeing as the ISA currently claims to speak for them...
