So distant up to now (4,3)


I believe the answer is:

thus far

'up to now' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

'so distant' is the wordplay.
'so' becomes 'thus' (synonyms).
'distant' becomes 'far' (synonyms).
'thus'+'far'='THUS FAR'

(Other definitions for thus far that I've seen before include "Up to this point" , "'Up to now (4,3)'" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
