I find the Sissa incredibly confusing.  The Crooked Bishop a little less
so, but only a little.  The raven is straight-forward enough, and perhaps
similar to a Sissa in strength ...

From a programming perspective, Knight-riders are fairly tricky, and you
incur a significant performace penalty when you generate moves for them. 
Multi-path pieces incur a *huge* penalty in cost of computation, even well
beyond that of Knight-riders.
