As it stands, the term "cladistic assassin" is, unfortunately, ambiguous. It
could denote an assassin whose weapon is cladistics, it could denote an
assassin >of< cladistics or of cladists, or it could denote some feature of
cladistics that might be used in an assassination. It could describe an
assassin who is a cladist. Other interpretations are also possible. I guess
time will tell which of these is correct.
