This refers to Isabelle/5c057abc1b78.

I have made some basic tests to see that it works in batch builds and in

Early adopters are encouraged to try it out by enabling option "kodkod_scala",
e.g. via the Plugin Options menu in Isabelle/jEdit.

Potential problems to watch out for:

* Overloading the Java process that runs Isabelle/Scala/PIDE by Kodkod tasks
that are not properly interrupted, or require too many resources.

* Instabilities of Kodkod tasks that invoke external solvers as JNI
libraries within the same Java process.

It might also make sense to experiment with auto_nitpick enabled.

According to experiments in the past couple of weeks, it looks good to me. So
in Isabelle/0c7a74a1c6d9 the defaults for nitpick are as follows:

kodkod_scala = true
auto_nitpick = true

If there are problems, we can reconsider it again for the coming release.
