 * Isar: the goal restriction operator [N] (default N = 1) evaluates a
 method expression within a sandbox consisting of the first N
-sub-goals, which need to exist. (Recall that proper Isar proof methods
-do not admit arbitrary goal addressing, unlike certain tactic
-emulations.)  For example, ``simp_all [3]'' simplifies the first three
-sub-goals, while (rule foo, simp_all)[] simplifies all new goals that
-emerge from applying rule foo to the originally first one.
