There are good reasons. Steffen recently started as a HiWi and he will be improving the Isar proof reconstruction code. That code is tightly interconnected with the rest of Sledgehammer, so this is definitely not one of those self-contained student projects that can be done in user space against some stable version of Isabelle.

When I helped him set up the repository version last week, the first thing we did was to "cannibalize" the official components.

Anyway, if you haven't seen the error before, I guess we'll have to investigate this more closely on Steffen's machine and find out what went wrong (and let you know).
