Bilski isn't the one about obviousness -- it's the one about a new btest for software patentability: how much of a real-world effect does software have to produce in order to be a patentable process and not an unpatentable mathematical fact. KSR v. Teleflex was about the test for obviousness. We still don't know how the two tests will interact.
