Rode differences

Since this is turning into a how-to discussion I have a question. Several of you have talked about overlapping circles in crowded anchorages. I can understand the concept if all boats swing approximately equally, but what do you do with someone who has all chain rode? I have read that boats swing differently on different types of rode so how do you figure how much room you need from another boat?
