Speculation is difficult since there is virtually no way to determine a good phylogenic tree for fungi. If you don't know what is related to who, you can't tell what features were inherited and what features developed at what level. The fungi are horrible examples of any kind of evolution for that reason and because even the question of where one organism ends and a new one begins isn't always obvious. We don't know much about mushrooms because they are just weird.

Somebody thought of that, and someone believed it
Look what it's done so far
