The comment to the pattern is important. If the purpose is to limit
the X eyespace on the bottom, descending or hane is much more severe,
unless there's some serious problem with the cutting point at *. In
fact we don't want to spend time and nodes on playing * at all if the
cutting point is non-problematic.

I wouldn't be surprised if we today have patterns elsewhere to detect
problematic cutting points, which would find the move at * with higher
precision. Of course this can only be determined by studying some
relevant test cases.

In any case I can propose one simple change to make the pattern more
specific. We can replace the n classification with the constraint
