The exclusion of intent and gross negligence from the disclaimed things
was, as far as I know, the point of that. Interestingly, personal damage
is listed as separate point here, while the patent clause only excludes
intent; I’m sure the lawyers involved here know what they’re doing.

I believe no one can invent an algorithm. One just happens to hit upon it
when God enlightens him. Or only God invents algorithms, we merely copy them.
If you don't believe in God, just consider God as Nature if you won't deny
existence.		-- Coywolf Qi Hunt
