Subject: Bishop tropism?

I am thinking a way to implement Bishop’s tropism for my engine. I know that
some use distance with opponent King for it. However, that method is not
relevant for me: a closed Bishop seems not to make more dangerous for opp King
(but it may be easily attacked by that King) than a far one.

I think it may be better if I check and bonus for a Bishop if it is in the same
diagonal with one of 9 squares of that King (it has potential of attacking
King). Did anyone try this? Any idea / suggestion? Thanks.
