Is there any way to use the updated root() function in ape ver 4.0 to find and 
set the midpoint root in a tree? I greatly appreciate the updated root() 
function to include the “edgelabel = TRUE” option, so that when I have 
bootstrapping support values listed as node labels, they get assigned to the 
proper edge of the tree after re-rooting. 

However, using the midpoint.root() function from phytools or midpoint() from 
the phangorn packages alter the node labels after rooting, and the 
bootstrapping values get assigned to the wrong edges. 

Thus, I would love to use the new root() function, with “edgelabel = TRUE” 
option enabled, to midpoint a tree. I would appreciate any suggestions.
