I still think that it is ironic that it was Ken who pointed me to the
article that turned me against Phylocode, by Norm Platnick. He argues
strongly for strict monophyly; in fact, his arguments against Phylocode
only make sense if one rejects paraphyletic groups.
(Btw, I self-identify as a male, and AFAIK my karyotype supports it. :-)
