Well, the question is how to do it when we have one tree, and a bunch of
others, and want to get distance measures between them.  Or pairs of trees
(produced, say, by two different methods) and want to measure distances
between the members of each pair.  You are right that one natural method
is a single file of trees, but we want to do something in these other cases
too.
