Coelurosaur analysis update (agan?)



I noticed the HTML coding as I clicked the send button.  Hopefully this
plain text version works for all.

This update is just to show one of the most bizzare results I've had.
Changes from last time-
- 196 characters, including 12 forelimb characters (no manual characters yet
though).
- "dentary toothless" character altered to reflect edentulous tip in several
taxa, and Avimimus and Changchengornis recoded to reflect the uncertainty of
their state (in response to Jaime's suggestions).
- all somewhat codable taxa I've examined are included.  That equals 111
taxa.
- Segnosaurs were constrained to be monophyletic in respect to
Tyrannosauridae, Ornithomimidae, Oviraptoridae and Ornithurae.  This is due
to tyrannosauroid Therizinosaurus and oviraptorosaurian Nothronychus and
Neimongosaurus that kept appearing.
- Tyrannosauroids were constrained to be coelurosaurs after they appeared as
carnosaurs continually.  Ornitholestestiids appearing as carnosaurs now is
most peculiar.

Most parts are surprisingly decent, some are odd, but I find it interesting
nonetheless.
