Actually, I need to apologize to the community. I was wrong — the midpoint()
function works perfectly as is!
I had built a little example with dummy data that was confusing me. But, I
changed my example and now I understand what’s going on. After running the
midpoint() function, it simply labels both branches on either side of the
midpoint root with the same support value (which is correct and makes sense).
In my poor example, I thought this was a bug.
Thank you very much for this function. It’s very useful for my work!
