and this _hypothetical_ SNP would be called L21.2 in J2 instead ...
that is, R- L21.1 in one case and J-L21.2 in the other ...
In reviewing WTY files, I already see these parallel mutations happening
more and more!

Recently in fact in one of our J2a-L24 clusters, Thomas found a person
derived for M365, formerly a J1 only SNP. So now we have M365.1 in J1
and M365.2 in J2. In J2a-L24 in fact we have found 10 new SNPs recently
via WTY! There are 3 new SNPs in my own Y-chromosome. What on Earth!
I have no idea how recently these SNPs have occurred. Much work to do
to find out!

We're going to have Y-SNPs up the kazoo!
