No, it's not easy to do that. We would have to have some way of
forcing the tree NOT to contain a group. PAUP can do that, of course.
We are behind in preparing version 4.0 owing to a crush of other
things to do, and probably won't get that kind of feature into 4.0,
which will be the next version and may be out in about a year.
In the longer run I'd like to put it in.
As for "any other feature" yes, we'll have a lot of "any others".
