Sorry folks, I didn't intend for this to be posted.  It was 
supposed to be a private mail message but I pressed the wrong 
button on my browser.  You won't be able to see the pre-
submission manuscript mentioned above, because I changed 
the URL to keep it private.  

However, I have already received some mail about 
this so if people are *really* interested in constructive 
neutral evolution, I can explain the basic concepts and 
give some likely examples from molecular evolution.
