This is an interesting project. I'm glad to see more people working on
phylogenetics related wrappers and workflows. I wonder if we could get a
"Phylogenetics" category added to the main Galaxy Toolshed, so we could put all
the relevant wrappers in there to make them easier to find considering the
apparent duplication of efforts.
