PATENTED: Passing arrays to stored procedures

Today I was searching for a ways to pass arrays to stored procedures in MySQL and came across this interesting link:

Kartik was online and he gave me this link which gives better explanation with PDF’s:

So its clear that I wont be able to do that with PHP-MySQL as its not and may never be implemented because of the patent.

Has any body managed to simulate this functionality in MySQL?
