Even a few years ago, long movers with single-line solution were accepted as the norm ! How times have changed ! :-)

The key is not quite satisfactory - stopping a mobile bP - but it is probably the best one possible. At least I cannot find a version with a better key (there are more economical versions with capture of a mobile bP in the key, but that must be even worse).
