Calculates the number of splits (edges) that differs for two trees
'Split-Dist' calculates the number of splits (edges) that differs for two trees. When you construct phylogenetic trees using slightly different methods, or from slightly different input data, the trees will not completely agree on the topology. When they differ, it is interesting to know where they differ (which edges can be found in both trees and which cannot).
