[Phylobase-devl] CRAN release

I suggest we do a beta release of phylobase to CRAN.  We seem to have  
tackled most of the architectural issues and bugs that we wanted to.   
This and a lack of time has caused development to be notably slower  
over the last month.

To the best of my knowledge all planned but unimplmented code, falls  
into the category of enhancements that would not break code produced  
w/ the current version.

I think there would be great value in getting the package out to a  
wider audience (just this week I was asked how to do things in ape  
that are trivial w/ phylobase).  More eyes will make bugs and gaps in  
the documentation more obvious.  Furthermore, package developers will  
shy away from phylobase until it is available to them on CRAN.

R-core has also just released 2.10.0 (which should make some mac  
issues a bit better.)

Any objections?
