  So -- I'm pleased that there's movement on phylobase again
(mostly due to our "junior" contributors -- thanks Thibaut,
Francois, Peter!) ... I would love to get development jump-started
again.  Some possibilities:

  * chat on the list about a deadline and milestones needed
for a CRAN release?  (My votes: merged plotting code, all known
bugs fixed [I don't actually think that would be hard], node-labeling
scheme updated).

  * have one or more additional conference calls?

  * an ambitious plan: have a "virtual hackathon" sometime
between now and mid-January, where we all agree to the best
of our abilities to spend the same day or two investing
a significant amount of hacking time ... we could have
one or two 'plenary sessions' a day and do Skype/chat
in between ... what do you think?
