Backward simplication 

On top of the usual conditions 
a) some opponent in front (but no lever) 
b) some neighbours (in front) (but no neighbour behind or same rank) 
c) < rank_5 

to find out if a pawn is backward we look at the squares in front of this pawn to reach the same rank as the next neighbour. 

In current master, a pawn is backward if any of those squares is controlled by an enemy pawn on an adjacent file 

In this version, a pawn is ALSO backward if any of those squares is occupied by an enemy pawn.
