All players are permitted to use whatever assistance that they deem necessary.

Made a small adjustment to the phrasing of the re-introduction of the
Designated Individual and the Significant Other. The term 'vacant' is
not applicable in every case. But their adjacency obligations apply
in every case.

Clarified that the leap of the Conflict Arbitrator as to a vacant
cell. Sorry about this oversight, probably thought it was obvious
because of the nature of the piece.

Clarified the re-introduction of 'sandwich' displaced Average Individuals.

Also, those pieces which are allowed to displaced others can do so to
either players' pieces. This is Equal Opportunity. And for this
reason, the 'freezing' of pieces by the Public Housing applies to all
pieces. And pieces which are displaced by the Group Therapist are
allowed to re-introduce on initial positions on either side of the
field.
