Ah, but you still think both groups are theropod (and coelurosaurian
hopefully), correct?  Although I see no evidence that sauriurines are
monophyletic, or that any coelurosaurian group is more closely related to
them than to ornithurines (or vice versa), the idea is merely extremely
unlikely, not ludicrous. :-)
