A useful endgame trick

Seen during Street Chess on Saturday was a neat endgame trick from the following position. Clearly Black has an advantage, due to White's pawns being fixed on the white squares, but hops of locking out the Black king means a breakthrough is still required. To achieve this Black found the following tactical sequence. 1. ... f5! 2.a4 fxg4 3.fxg4 Bxg4! 4.hxg4 h3 5.Ba6 e4+! blocking the h1-a8 diagonal and allowing the h pawn to queen.
