I mean that if I have a phylo4d object name foo, I should be able to  
do something like foo[-c('taxa1', 'taxa2'), ].  This should probably  
have a bit of discussion about how exactly it should work.  I would  
think that using the data frame sub-setting as a models is a good start.

We can have custom categories in the tracker, are there particular  
areas we would like to separate the package into, or should we just  
have a flat list for the time being?

I will look into getting changes in the tracker forwarded to the  
mailing list.
