psst....IsBase isn't a Rules flag

The above comment appears in the Red Alert 2 rules(md).ini file against the BaseNormal flag.

This flag was valid in Tiberian Sun, and appears to have the same functionality as Red Alert 2's BaseNormal flag (which is assumed to have replaced IsBase). The purpose of the comment is presumably to remind the developers of this change so that they don't mistakenly use the old flag.

In Red Alert 2, this flag is included by mistake on [CAOUTP] (the Tech Outpost) as IsBase=yes instead of BaseNormal=yes. However, as IsBase isn't parsed and BaseNormal defaults to yes, the intended effect is achieved anyway.
