I don't know what a "phylogeny fight" is, but I'm sure it would be
unpleasant to get into one with John McNeill.  So let me just clarify:
I have nothing against morphologic data (I pay what some would say was
inordinate attention to the details of snail reproductive plumbing, and
have never sequenced a base-pair in my life).  It is what one does with
the data that determines results.  And there are more ideas floating
around now about what one should _do_ than at any previous time, making
unqualified statements of "relationship" or "affinity" less than helpful.
