Does this mean that the Wikileaks' deadman's switch is real and being readied to be released?

Are the numbers the code to the deadman's switch or a code for anyone who has access to it and telling them to get ready to release it? I guess that we will find out if Orr when Assange comes out of the embassy.
Glenn Greenwald's article talks about what could happen if Assange is arrested by the U.K. police and how long it would take for him to be extradited from the U.K. to the US. He says that it could take years, but Julian would remain in prison during that time.
The central oddity of Assange’s case – that he has been effectively imprisoned for eight years despite never having been charged with, let alone convicted of, any crime – is virtually certain to be prolonged once Ecuador hands him over to the U.K. Even under the best-case scenario, it appears highly likely that Assange will continue to be imprisoned by British authorities.
The only known criminal proceeding Assange currently faces is a pending 2012 arrest warrant for “failure to surrender” – basically a minor bail violation charge that arose when he obtained asylum from Ecuador rather than complying with bail conditions by returning to court for a hearing on his attempt to resist extradition to Sweden.
That charge carries a prison term of three months and a fine, though it is possible that the time Assange has already spent in prison in the UK could be counted against that sentence. In 2010, Assange was imprisoned in Wandsworth Prison, kept in isolation, for 10 days until he was released on bail; he was then under house arrest for 550 days at the home of a supporter.
