Bio::Tree::Draw::Cladogram is a new module for drawing Bio::Tree::Tree 
objects in Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) format. It can be utilized both 
for displaying a single phylogenetic tree (a cladogram) and for the 
comparative display of two phylogenetic trees (a tanglegram) such as a 
gene tree and a species tree, a host tree and a parasite tree, two 
alternative trees for the same set of taxa, or two alternative trees for 
overlapping sets of taxa.

The POD contains a detailed description of the way in which cladograms 
and tanglegrams are built. However, tests are still missing and I'm 
afraid I won't be able to work on this until August. Many extensions are 
possible, such as using branch lengths and producing output in other 
graphic formats. Any suggestions are welcome.
