Impact:
All pieces can take pawns with en passant rules instead of just other pawns

Test Case:
1. Open attached PGN file in glchess

Black knight moves to position, no pieces are captured
Observed result:
Black knight moves to position, white pawn that marched the previous turn is captured

Regression Potential:
Risk of breaking other chess rules

Err, only pawns can take another pawn en passant, no other piece can.

This is not spelled exactly this way at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/En_passant nor
http://www.fide.com/fide/handbook?id=124&view=article but I have *never* seen nor heard or anything else than a pawn doing an en passant take.
