The question is whether the expression of an interface in terms of
.h files or the equivalent has undergone a content/form merger
(iow, it could not be much different from how it is in order to
do the job it needs to do).  If so, that expression is indeed
not copyrightable.

struggling for life in the water, and when
he has reached ground encumbers him with help?
