Restructuring student loans

In the only case decided today, in United Student Aid Funds, Inc. v. Espinosa, (No. 08-1134) the U.S. Supreme Court allowed  the restructuring of a student loan. I didn’t think such loans could be part of bankruptcy proceedings, but apparently I was in error.

My question now is:  How many more students/former students will be pushed into bankruptcy just to reorganize these normally very large debts?
