  In the context of the else-branch we can show that the exact choice is
  irrelvant; in practice, finding this point where choice becomes irrelevant is the
  most difficult thing!

lemma valuesum_choice:
  "finite (Mapping.keys M) \<Longrightarrow> x \<in> Mapping.keys M \<Longrightarrow> y \<in> Mapping.keys M \<Longrightarrow>

text {*
  Given @{text valuesum_rec} as initial description, we stepwise refine it to something executable;
  first, we formally insert the constructor @{term Mapping} and split the one equation into two,
  where the second one provides the necessary context:
*}

lemma valuesum_rec_Mapping:
  shows [code]: "valuesum (Mapping []) = 0"
  and "valuesum (Mapping (x # xs)) = (let l = (SOME l. l \<in> Mapping.keys (Mapping (x # xs))) in
    the (Mapping.lookup (Mapping (x # xs)) l) + valuesum (Mapping.delete l (Mapping (x # xs))))"
  by (simp_all add: valuesum_rec finite_dom_map_of is_empty_Mapping null_def)

text {*
  As a side effect the precondition disappears (but note this has nothing to do with choice!).
  The first equation deals with the uncritical empty case and can already be used for code generation.

  Using @{text valuesum_choice}, we are able to prove an executable version of @{term valuesum}:
*}

lemma valuesum_rec_exec [code]:
  "valuesum (Mapping (x # xs)) = (let l = fst (hd (x # xs)) in
    the (Mapping.lookup (Mapping (x # xs)) l) + valuesum (Mapping.delete l (Mapping (x # xs))))"
proof -
  let ?M = "Mapping (x # xs)"
  let ?l1 = "(SOME l. l \<in> Mapping.keys ?M)"
  let ?l2 = "fst (hd (x # xs))"
  have "finite (Mapping.keys ?M)" by (simp add: keys_Mapping)

    by (rule someI) (auto simp add: keys_Mapping)
  moreover have "?l2 \<in> Mapping.keys ?M"
