I wouldn't call W-Flyers minor. That's a good idea, and unless Gilman can find another example new p-t from 1994. Forwards and backwards like a Rook, and only forward like a Bishop. For context Trenholme is putting them in 8x8 for Bishops, but it would be better than too-strong Januses on 8x10. That's saying a lot because it puts them ahead of ALL the unbalanced Carrera-Capablancas too -- unbalanced for their need of two p-ts not one. W-Flyers' channelled backwardness, only like a Rook, aesthetically sets off well with Pawns' forward-only like a very limited Rook.
