Default Leather Gaskets, Anyone

I am thinking of using leather for the crankcase halves gasket, and maybe for the cylinder base as well.
Anyone ever try using leather as a gasket?
When installed, the leather will absorb a little oil, expand and make a tight seal. I don't know if the heat and gasoline will muck things up or not.
