We are approaching the main principle of Isabelle system integration: it 
is done so carefully such that it hides the true complexity.

I stand to my word to call it insanity to attempt that, just to make 
clear what the order of the problem is.

Nobody has a benefit from bad re-packaging of Isabelle. We have seen 
this in the past several times. There is no point to repeat the 
experiment: the result will be the same.
