This function computes branch lengths of a tree using different methods.

The power at which heights must be raised (see below).
further argument(s) to be passed to
Grafen's (1989) computation of branch lengths: each node is given a ‘height’, namely the number of leaves of the subtree minus one, 0 for leaves. Each height is scaled so that root height is 1, and then raised at power 'rho' (> 0). Branch lengths are then computed as the difference between height of lower node and height of upper node.

Zero-length branches are not treated as multichotomies, and thus may
