Interestingly, one of the things that came up at the software patent conference I attended in March is that, as patent examiners gain more experience on the job, they tend to approve more patents. It's the new, green ones who ask the hardest questions. It's not a matter of inexperience; it's more one of being sucked into a system which sees its mission as the granting of patents.
