On a side note, I'd like to point out that even if you do spend the time
searching the patents list and find some patent that *possibly* covers
your work, then it is a bad idea to write to a public list describing
your work and identifying the patent. All these lists are easily
searchable and your legal position can't be better if it can be shown
you were aware of the patent.
