If one made the small steps directionally oriented backwards, so that the pieces could leap far forward and only slightly backwards, then these pieces could mingle with other types of pieces, not just among other odd leapers as in CBJ's Sky. That was my idea behind my (yet unreleased) catfish piece which is an (0,5) leaper that can move backwards like a ferz and alfil or a (0,3) sideways leaper. I can't vouch for the viability of the catfish yet.
