At first I was amazed, too. Experts in this group are forever digging up
the most obscure findings to support their positions - you would think a
famous "Science" publication would get some creative juices going.
Perhaps the reason no one has commented is that no one has previously
staked their reputations on a position that the new finding would
support. Therefore it is useless.
