What's wrong with this 27G xp3_o4im4id1qcz0dm0di9qi96zx11 synthesis? It cannot be uploaded to catagolue...

Looks like a valid synthesis, and it seems to be

in there now.

@Someone-who-knows-components, is that a previously known reaction? It's hard to know where to look for it in components_v4. It's the current recipe for

xs24_31e8w8ozc8711dd, so I'm guessing it just got there and is therefore better than whatever was there before if anything.

(I sure wish Catagolue/Shinjuku had an audit trail so that "whatever was there before" is visible. Sometimes that's useful information, which is why it's so helpful that Mark Niemiec's database keeps multiple recipes.) (While I'm wishing, naturally the audit trail should include who uploaded what when.)

This half-blockade trick isn't exactly a component, I guess, since it only works to add it to an active pattern before the point of the hat shape appears. It could be a component if there's a way to get the closer block into place faster, in the form of a preblock instead of a pre-preblock at the moment when it first presents a two-cell surface.

That said, the trick works any time there's any way to sneak those two blocks in somehow. Which seems like it will be a good fraction of the time:
