Farewell to Species

Hi, guys, need some help here.

Cichlids again.  Field data and genetics strongly suggest that we're
looking at reticulate evolution.  Schluter et al.'s recent paper in
Science on parallel speciation in sticklebacks provided experimental data
to support the plausibility of my contentions, published earlier.  Time to
take network phylogenies seriously.

Has anybody out there thought a lot about this, and have recommendations
for the best available protocols for non-Hennigian...can I even use the
term...cladistics?  Have the bad-boy aspects of Mayr's evolutionary
systematics ever been properly formalized?
