I would like to say that Bergey's isn't outdated to anybody working on a
bacterium that isn't sequenced!  It takes a much shorter amount of time
to determine G+C empirically than it takes to sequence the genome of
anything.  Besides, a new edition of Bergey's is on the way in the next
few years, which is definitely not outdated and is completely
reorganized.  I'd hate to see what you'd say about the new edition of
The Prokaryotes!
