re: question about Longisquama plumes

arranged into a sail-like system, but I don't think any have conceived of them
as an appendage.

So, Sharov _assumed_ paired plume sets, and others (about five papers, most 
recent: Martin 2004) just followed suit? You mean to tell me, nobody actually 
_saw  and traced_ the second set of plumes?
