I see it's available at the RootsWeb Companion page at DNA Heritage now. That
was a massive amount of work! It really dramatizes some of the things we talk
about: hotspots (especially 16519C!) and coldspots, how certain mutations are
common in some haplogroups but also occur in other haplogroups, the greater
number of mutations within the classical definitions of HVR1/HVR2/HVR3 regions,
and so forth and so on. I bet it will become a handy reference and inspire
some thought experiments, too. I find it surprising to see the number of loci
that have only one or two samples with a mutation out of a database containing
many thousands of records.
