Johansen Strikes Back: Reverse Engineers iTMS

As quick as Apple was to close down its security hole in the iTunes Music Store to lock out the PyMusique interface, Jon Lech Johansen strikes back with even more lightening speed. Just in from his blog:
The iTunes Music Store recently stopped supporting iTunes versions below 4.7 in an attempt to shut out 3rd party clients. I have reverse engineered the iTMS 4.7 crypto which will once again enable 3rd party clients to communicate with the iTMS.
Can this trench war of programming hold up or will Apple reach for legal means this time?
