OK, Thanks.

Having said that, not being able to do what I was trying to do for Makruk takes away the ability for players to develop automated presets for variants that may use these non-totally-alpha pieces. (P180, b180, etc.)

Right now the curent set of functions just do not easily support writing rules for presets that mix pieces that have non alpha chracters, with others that don't.

If I had a new variant that used regular pieces and a silver general (S! and s!), I would have the same problem, or be forced to use a diferent piece.

The four functions that I have been suggesting would make a vast amount of code already written totally reusable for a wide variety of applications.
