IMHO Roman has already published his design (on the internet and on the
piclist), and granted use under his 'hippyware' license. Although not
easy to prove in court, this is enough to
- prevent him from patenting (you can't patent what you have already
published)
- prevent anyone else from patenting

Of course a publication in a magazine will make the proving part much
easier.
