gmAddToList and gmRemoveFromList are intended for use by the engine when changing order of gears in the list. It is not recommended that lua change these, and at present they are used together when changing a gear's Z. For example, if lua set gmRemoveFromList, it would cause a leak of the gear, since lua would no longer be able to restore it. Setting both together would have no effect since lua cannot at present change Z.
