This function calculates the symmetry nodes index *SNI(T)* for a given rooted
binary tree *T*. *SNI(T)* is defined as the number of inner vertices *v* that are not
symmetry nodes, i.e. the two pending subtrees rooted at the children of *v* do not
have the same tree shape.

For *n=1* the function returns *SNI(T)=0* and a warning.
