Climbing dromaeosaurs?



We've bandied about theories here concerning the utility of
dromaeosaurs' enlarged hindclaws, and discussed the difficulty they'd
have had slashing with them.  Some have suggested that the claw may
have been used instead to climb trees.

Well, has anyone published anything suggesting this hypothesis?  If
so, could someone point me to a source and, ideally, give a summary? 
TIA.
