      I've found some strange behavior with kits that specify wizard subclasses.

      The normal behavior you see when creating a Wizard is a pop up window
      with all the subclasses presented, if you choose a subclass with a cost
      you will then see a second pop up window with a llist of Schools (for
      the Wizard class) that you must choose to be prohibited.

      With a kit which grants levels of the Wizard class we have a SUBCLASS
      tag which sets the subclass choice, we don't currently have anyway to
      set the choice of prohibited school. The expected behavior for a kit
      line of:

      CLASS:Wizard LEVEL:10 SUBCLASS:Wizard

      Is that it would just grant the levels, if the SUBCLASS were one of the
      specialist I would expect to get the pop up window to choose prohibited
      schools based on the SUBCLASS choice.

      The line above is from the Aboleth Mage kit and the strangeness can be
      seen by using this kit. Open PCGen, load the RSRD, make a new character
      and apply the Aboleth Mage kit. The pop up window the choose a School
      Choice comes up (it shouldn't) and there are only two choices, Wizard
      and Abjurer.

      Now here's the even weirder thing, after you use the Aboleth Mage kit
      when you make another new PC and add the Wizard class to it the School
      Choice pop up window again has only the first two choices. It seems to
      take a restart before the full choices are offered in that window again.

      This is trackered here:

      https://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=2012814&group_id=25576&atid=384719

      Side question for the code team: is there a (purhaps undocumented) way
      of specifying the subclass cost choice from a kit? (I doubt it but it
      doesn't hurt to ask)
