 When switching to using log-space, I did not take the time to figure out
 how to have the volume regularized calculation of alpha work in logspace.
 Currently the code looks like:

 if (useVolReg)
   // This is incorrect.
   gT = alphaUpper; // / (subtreeLeavesVTInv - vTInv);

 In normal space, the expression in the denominator is the sum of all the
 inverse volumes of the leaves, with the inverse volume of the node
 subtracted from it.  How to do this in logspace is slightly less clear; we
 want to avoid non-logspace representation of volumes.
