Hi Stefan,

well, we can extend interpret_construction in such a way but also have
to do so for the tools which use it.  This is perhaps not even that
difficult, but it adds considerable complexity to already complicated
tools, only to keep codified comments (the only effect of different
names of type variables in datatype branches is in the theory source
text and some quasi-internal tables).

This surely is worth the effort.
