OT: the whole SCO IP patent(s) mess



I'm kinda surprised that this hasn't come up on any of the Red Hat mailing lists I'm subscribed to, but does anyone have credible info on how much of an effect SCO's patent enforcement lawsuits would/could have on Red Hat Linux? It's my understanding that is involves some libraries that provide Unix program capability on Linux, but concrete details seem to be scarce.

My hunch is while that we won't know for sure until lawsuits are filed and Red Hat makes an offical response, standard installs of Red Hat Linux are OK. Anyone else have that impression? Of course all of this is speculation and if SCO tries to make a land grab, things could get real messy real quick.
