Yes, the simpset() form is indeed a legacy feature.  If it occurs in 
one-shot scripts, it can usually be replaced by the static version 
@{simpset}; the same for @{claset} or @{clasimpset}.

Your application sounds more like requiring a run-time context, though. So 
assuming you have a proper value (ctxt: Proof.context) already, you may 
get the simpset component like this:

  local_simpset_of ctxt

and then add your stuff to the result.

Most likely, no antiquotations will get involved here, because you are 
working only with a runtime context.  You still need to get hold of that, 
i.e. ``by induction over the structure of your code'' as explained
