I would say that the garrison should report only to it's owner at default,
but the messages can be "forwarded" on to the capitol

An idea I had, was to have 'messenger' units, that transport the money from
the garrion to the capitol. There must be a route there, or the garrison would
be lost anyways, and it allows for some highway robbery of tax money, which is
not currently possible(well, I guess pillaging is kinda that way..hmm...).

I think this may take up too much of a nobles time. I'd rather that nobles
never have to be present in garrisons, except to set them up or transfer
ownership(well, maybe not to transfer ownership)
