Kabocha Pie for Thanksgiving?

Someone on the LA board was asking about places that offer kabocha squash (a type of Japanese squash) pie. I did come across this recipe, (see link below - may take registration) from the NY Times, which looked pretty tasty.
You can substitute any of the winter squashes for the pumpkin in any pumpkin pie recipe, although the sweeter, richer ones are best (Kabocha, Delicata, Sweet Dumpling). Just replace the pumpkin purée with an equal amount of squash purée. After all, pumpkin is for all intents and purposes just another winter squash.
Works with sweet potato, too.
