Dear All:
     Comparisons of the chimp and human genomes are apparently suggesting 
that they may have partially interbred for a million years after the 
speciation process first began.  Don't know the details, so not sure how 
significant or accurate this analysis might be, but sounds like it be a case 
of very fuzzy origins for both species:
