Thank you George.  You raise a good point about moving your opponent's pawn, and I was actually considering this stipulation: pawn swapping is illegal for Player A any time the enemy pawn is threatening Player A's piece(s)  This would prevent people from using the pawn swap to bypass a threat by pawn.  Still, a player still has the option to use the pawn swap to MAKE a threat, as I demonstrated in my last diagram shown.

Your suggestion is good too, but I wouldn't want the whole game to change too much from standard chess.  It's an interesting sub-variant idea though for sure.
