I feel like I'm usually more insightful than this, but here it is anyways:
Would I be right in saying, then, that the patent landscape is irrelevant if one is implementing cleanroom from the math? Or is that copyright-mindset, so you're alright cleanroom from the math as long as you don't wind up substantially similar to an existing patented implemetation? And that's where the trouble lies, in determining exactly what implementations are foreclosed?
