A naive prover for intuitionistic logic

BEWARE OF NAME CLASHES WITH CLASSICAL TACTICS -- use Int.fast_tac ...

Completeness (for propositional logic) is proved in 

Roy Dyckhoff.
Contraction-Free Sequent Calculi for Intuitionistic Logic.
J. Symbolic Logic  57(3), 1992, pages 795-807.

The approach was developed independently by Roy Dyckhoff and L C Paulson.
