Ahh, that explains it.  I didn't read through to the end.  It is worth checking out sometime.  I wonder if someone could do a 2 player version also. Wait, IAGO Chess could accommodate that :-).

In regards to the Turks using gating, it does look at least like it is a drop.  If it involves placing a piece in a space just vacated by another piece, that would be gating.  Gating is a move connected to another piece, as I see it.  Castling and pawn promotion would be varieties.
