	What is the current consensus re Phrygian, Armenian, Thracian,
Macedonian, Albanian and Greek?
	Are they considered as part of an Indo-Balkan subfamily along with
	Is Albanian considered more likely to be Illyrian than Thracian?
	Is Phrygian still considered as a possible ancestor or close
relative of Armenian?
	Is Macedonian considered closer to Greek or Thracian?


>-- Hittite and Phrygian are distinct.  They're both IE, of course, but
>Phrygian is not a member of the Anatolian subgroup of IE.  Like Armenian,
>it's intrusive in Anatolia and is post-Hittite.
