Most paleontologists haven't examined the specimen, but this is beginning to 
change as the birds-are-not-dinosaurs people (e.g., Ruben et al.)  look for 
putative non-dinosaurian bird ancestors. Talked with Geist at SVP last year 
and he is amazed at how dinosaur-like Longisquama is turning out to be. Stay 
tuned.
