I would like at least a short section in the tutorial mentioning
the new module with a link to the wiki. That way people just
browsing the tutorial to get an idea of what Biopython covers
will be made aware of it. In the long term I think the module
deserves a chapter (which can be based on the wiki text).
Are you familiar with LaTeX? (The mark up language the
tutorial is written in).

Also, I think it would be great to have a post on the news
server (which we can link to in the release announcement)
talking about what Bio.Phylo adds (and thank GSoC and
NESCent etc). A little advertising ;) How does that sound?
