Feature request: choice of piece odds instead of time odds

Hi, so my idea is this: give the higher rated player a choice between time handicap and piece odds in tournaments.

For example, instead of 10 seconds less the higher rated player can choose to give a pawn, instead of 20 seconds a knight etc. Not really sure about the details, but it might be a good way to balance the game somewhat (mainly by preventing people playing some nonsense really fast to run out the time). Increment might work too, but that could stretch out the games too much....

Not sure that would work well for tournaments, but it's a great idea for giving odds between stronger & weaker players. Certainly for unrated games, but perhaps even rated games (so that cubits may be wagered).

This would increase, perhaps greatly, the match-up opportunities of members here to obtain interesting contests.

That might be a good idea too, as there are not all that much 'regular' games to be found at Chesscube.

But why do you think it wouldn't work exactly? I don't see any real disadvantages, and it might get me playing a bit more than I do right now.
