+text{* At the moment this theory provides only the input syntax for
+list comprehension: @{text"[x. x \<leftarrow> xs, \<dots>]"} rather than
+\verb![x| x <- xs, ...]! as in Haskell.
+The print translation from internal form to list comprehensions would
+be nice. Unfortunately one cannot just turn the translations around
+because in the final equality @{text p} occurs twice on the
+right-hand side. Due to this restriction, the translation must be hand-coded.
+A more substantial extension would be proper theorem proving
+support. For example, it would be nice if
+@{text"set[f x y. x \<leftarrow> xs, y \<leftarrow> ys, P x y]"}
+produced something like
+@{term"{z. EX x: set xs. EX y:set ys. P x y \<and> z = f x y}"}.  *}
