It'd be great if Sereno (or another researcher) at some point might
consider running all of Sereno's box analyses in a single huge
analysis of Dinosauria.  Perhaps first using only Sereno's original
work, then after much time and correction, re-run the analysis with
amended characters and codings. I think it'd be an interesting project
to say the least, perhaps the results would greatly change when neat
little boxes are made use of. ;]
