	The BBC has an article (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-
environment-21427896) about computer reconstructions of proto-languages 
(specifically Austronesian), with an 85% match with what linguists had 
reconstructed "by hand". The full report is published in the Proceedings of 
the National Academy of Science 
(http://www.pnas.org/content/early/2013/02/05/1204678110) -- anyone have 
access to it?
	I'm a little curious if they did any sort of checking for accuracy; for 
instance, inputing modern Romance langauges and seeing if the program spat out 
Latin.
