Joe, thanks for thinking about the game and commenting.  You recently wrote
[in regard to a bigger-board variant of this games's one-step pawns]:
'People whine when the pawns are slow.'  

My response is, 'Be that as it may. Many whine much louder when
checkmated.  But we still allow checkmates.  I like keeping the rules for
this game constant; not change them if the pieces moved to a larger board.
If it takes each pawn 1 additional move progress across the board - what is
the harm in that?
