I am very sorry and apologize since my lack of signing my comment below has led to a misunderstanding. It was late, and I simply forgot.
My name is Bernhard Hermes, and I am not H.G.Muller, and I sometimes use signs like :-(

(And, it seems, I sometimes add unnecessary 's's to English verbs...)

No problems with this changed inventor credit from my side, even though I
think the comment by George Duke (2004-09-24) on the Grotesque Chess
discussion page, if his facts are correct, seems to indicate that
capablanca variants can't be truely invented anymore, maybe not even with
this particular castling rule. 

But when I was out to 'find', not necessarily 'invent', a suitable
variant, I did find it, as I already said in my game description, at the
place we now both wrote about. It was discarded version, and I picked it
up  - can't be said often enough.
