Re: two or three sacral vertebrae?

Interestingly, the paper by Paul Sereno and co. on _Eoraptor_ 
describes this theropod as having three sacral vertebrae.  _Eoraptor_ 
is regarded as more primitive than the herrerasaurids.  But I don't 
believe this paper differentiated between "partly" and "fully" 
incorporated sacrals.
