This command is not necessary. Many people seem not be to aware of
that but the revised PROMOTE command allows you to do that without a
modified TRANSFER command. The semi-new PROMOTE command is quite
useful (in contrast to the old one). As a matter of fact, I believe
it is too useful in that it allows you to do quite a few things which
the Great Gods had not thought of when they changed PROMOTE. But that
is (yet) just speculation, as I've not tried some of those uses yet.
