It seems logical to add 2 more types of cannons: captures as rook/bishop, but moves without capturing as Korean pao/vao. However, i don't remember any game, wich uses such pieces, altrough it's pretty simple idea... If there was no such piece before (and, most probably, it was, but not well-known), i'v invented new pieces...
