Just a correction: _A. arctunguis_ is considered a junior synonym of _A.
sarcophagus_, NOT _T. rex_.
Also, let's just say that some very, very comprehensive work on growth
patterns in tyrannosaurids, addressing (among other things) arm length will
be published sometime this year (I think: could be early 2003).
