I think we must be able to notify if someone brings up a 
topic/technology that is patented. We can't expect everyone to know all 
technologies and know which are patented. Especially not 
non-professional contributes doing this on their spare time.

Just saying "we can't do this" without any reason is not very satisfying.

Perhaps this particular topic (SEH) deserves to be added an FAQ or 
similar? It's be brought up a couple of times before here.
