	This is a pretty good rule.  Someone else suggested that mounted
squads make a test role each time they receive a suppresion; if they
no suppression, if they fail, they get a suppression and must dismount.

	We've started using mounted infantry and grav bike troops over
last few months, but not enough to really get a feel for these proposed
rules.	We'll try both.  In the past, either a squad is smart enough to
NOT be shot at while mounted, or they get hit while mounted and hosed
to a man...  (My poor Boer irregulars...)
