giving the output of growtree as input to PHYLIP

With GCG release 8.0 it was easy to give the .trees file generated by
growtree as input to the PHYLIP package programs drawgram and drawtree.
A reason to do this, is that the PHYLIP package offers a great choice
of different ways to represent the tree.

With GCG release 8.1 the format of the .trees file has changed from
a simple nested parentheses format to standard NEXUS format and so, it
does not work anymore, unless you use a file editor to remove anything
between the beginning of the file and the first parenthesis "(".

Of course, it is impossible to make everybody happy...
