I was recently playing around with a chess program and noticed that lots of chess these days is played in the 'Blitz' style, where there's a large initial bank of time and each turn earns you a relatively small amount of extra time. For example, you start with 5 minutes banked, and each turn you take earns you 30 seconds more. This is apparently a very popular way of playing.
I think the Warlight banking thing could be configured to model this pretty close to exactly. E.g. if you start with a bank of 4:30, and each turn is 30s, and you bank 100% of the time remaining. But I guess you only have options to set turn length in minutes, right? So you could get close with 1 minute turns, 4 minutes initially banked.
For a WL game, it would probably be more like initial bank of say 15 minutes with 1 or 2 minutes per turn, 100% banking.
For multi-day, you might start with 5-7 days banked, and 1 day per turn, or something like that.
The idea is to allow for a few long turns where you have to think, but most turns are supposed to be quick (to build up banked time for harder moves later). Not sure how well that translates into WL.
