      I have only studied the Acts volumes of TuT, nothing on the epistles yet.
      But, as far as I can see, Aland et al have not produced any
      MS grouping results from their data beyond the categories I-V seen in TotNT,
      and even that categorization is underwhelming.
      In Acts, effort was expended to show that Bezae was not closely related to
      any miniscule, but results beyond that were not really attempted.
      I seem to remember there was a reference in the Acts volume to someone
      else's MS classification work in the Catholic Epistles, based on the TuT data,
      but I didn't save the reference before returning the book.

      The way that MS differences were counted in TuT discarded a large
      portion of the significant information that could be extracted from
      the collations. The massive printed tables of MS comparisons
      ought to be redone (but not reprinted!) with attention to weighing
      differences, instead of just counting them.
      My own slogging attempts to better the situation, re Acts, are
      slowed by the task of getting data into machine-readable form.
