Longisquama ... uh.  Not sure what's going on here: was George saying
that it's more closely related to classic theropods than sauropods

Yes, because it supposedly had a furcula. (Cladistics with one character.) The bone in question is more parsimoniously interpreted as an interclavicle.

BTW, the phytodinosaurs were supposed to have had arboreal but not volant ancestors.
