I'm working on a zrf for Transporter Chess and have a few questions.  When
a Fighter promotes to a Super Fighter, under what conditions can that
Super Fighter then promote to a First Mate?  I assume the Super Fighter
must step out of the camp and then re-enter, so that promotion can be
accomplished in two moves.

If a Transporter is occupied by an enemy, can a piece still pass through
it?  If so, does it capture the enemy piece first and then make the
transport move, or does it pass through the enemy piece without affecting
it?  A similar question arises if the destination Transporter is occupied
by an enemy.  Can the transport move to that Transporter still be made,
resulting in capture of the enemy?  

Thanks, Dan.
