#' @param tree a tree of class \code{phylo} or \code{phylo4}. The tree should be binary and rooted; if not it will be coerced into a binary rooted tree using multi2di, if possible.
#' @return A vector of widths, where entry i is the number of nodes at depth i. There is a single node at depth 0 (the root) which is not included in the vector, for simplicity.
