Is there a formal name for this distance metric?

        distance=C.(dx+dy+max(dx,dy))

where C may be 1 or 1/2 , it doesn't much matter.

And in which well-known Go program(s) is it used? I'm sure I've seen  
something
about it recently but damned if I can find it again.

Help much appreciated.

Arthur
