Phylogeny of basal birds 2/3

Then I took those with 10 or fewer codings away (*Hulsanpes*, *Noguerornis*,
*Halimornis*, *Lectavis*, *Yungavolucris*, *Avisaurus*, *Alexornis*) and did
everything once more. It's interesting that the number of MPTs increased
dramatically (404,762 before reweighting, 365,517 afterwards). Of course, so
did calculation times, from about 1 1/4 hours to about 10 hours.

Before reweighting:

Yay! PAUP* corrupted the treefile. TreeView says "Command 'Begin' used
incorrectly" and refuses to open.

After reweighting:

No Adams consensus -- I don't have enough RAM for that.
