    Apparently a lot has happened since 1992...

    Yeah, recombination/pseudotyping can screw up cladistic analyses of retroviruses in particular. Not only XMRV but just about all MLVs seem quite capable of swapping DNA, so the entire "MLV-related virus" population could make for a very weird-looking family tree if the implications of the recent NCI/ WPI work and the Alter study are any indication. It will at least help to have complete viral genomes; just looking at sections of the gag gene won't be enough.
