No hot Jupiter around TW Hydrae?

TW Hydrae: evidence of stellar spots instead of a Hot Jupiter

Looks like classical T Tauri stars can support stable starspots which can mimic planets in RV observations. Pity, because if this were a hot Jupiter system it would be a very useful test for migration theories and models which predict terrestrial planet formation in the wake of gas giant migration through the inner system.
