Added another important clarification about melds, concerning the case of one move completing two melds. One meld must be removed and scored; only after that can the remaining tiles be inspected for another ring, but since the tile that created the rings is removed with the first meld, there are no further rings. That's why there can only be one meld at a time, even if more than one ring ist completed.

refinements to harmony and territory sections. Adapted harmony rule to give a harmony point for sending or receiving. this eliminates the need for chain distributed harmony and loosens the harmony protection from capture slightly. Chain distribution may need to be restored if capture becomes too easy. clarified purpose of sample game.
