Grotesque Chess Preset for Game Courier

Here is a Game Courier preset for Grotesque Chess, a variant of Capablanca's Chess that leave no Pawn unprotected in the initial array. The following preset enforces the rules and provides shortcuts for castling and en passant. To castle, just move the King to the square of your choice. The Rook will then be moved to the appropriate square. To capture by en passant, just move your Pawn to where it's going. The enemy Pawn will then be captured automatically.
