Added new preset with dual-path piece combining Korean Chess Elephant + Knight. This piece must slide along a CLEAR path of 1 orthogonal followed by one OR two diagonal outwards.
Please disregard any link to preset in comments section with 'Falcon' piece.
Excellent comment to balance out irrelevant comment regarding patent.

This Comment is to tidy up USP5690334 from year 1997 through year 2017. Gilman reminded me by today's Comment at Complete Permutation Chess. Gilman's AOF1 was objectionable for changing the board size on the fly after posting it June 2007, as if poorly thought out. No one claims probably that any AOF is tantamount to Falcon invention [on second thought, still somewhat uncertain, because rereading Comments at AOF year 2007, not sure yet of having nailed down the piece mix]. As Gilman notes, he is welcome to use Falcon even on 8x10, 10x10 with leapers or other exotics, in principle: the claims of the Patent were designed for such experimentation. The 'Poor' here is for the unwanted Preset with two Falcons Daniel puts up 23.April.2008, not for PtPBC itself. When Abdul-Rahman Sabahi made Presets for 'Several FC Presets' in 2007, we were in consultation, unlike Daniel. Though short couple of Falcons, Daniel's Preset is covered by USP5690334 by two legal principles, the simpler one of which is Doctrine of Equivalents. Just Google 'Doctrine Equivalents' for more information. This Comment suffices to indicate that in future such use of 1 or 2 Falcons only on 8x10 and 9x10 and 10x10 and larger is part of the protected Falcon invention. Daniel can keep it with the understanding.
