The time for commentary uninformed by DIY exploratory analysis is fast coming to a close. The alpha version of ADMIXTOOLS is out. It's a moderately large download, 166 MB in compressed format. Do note that most of this consists of data files, not the program itself. I uploaded a zip of the README files if you are hesitant. Dienekes has a preview. I probably won't poking around until this weekend. If you are confused as to why this is a big deal, please see my post. We're nearing Adam-biting-the-apple territory for regular people on the street willing to devote some computing time to exploring questions. Update: From the comments:

For future googlers, the only thing you need to do to compile on a mac (Mac OS X 10.6.8) is add a single line to the Makefile. Replace: libnick.a: dirs tables $(OBJ) ar -r libnick.a $(OBJ) with libnick.a: dirs tables $(OBJ) ar -r libnick.a $(OBJ) ranlib libnick.a then make clean and make all. Should compile fine.
