This seems easy enough using the functions in ch 5 of the Reference Manual

The ind.hyp. Andreas is referring to appears nested inside the induction rule, where it cannot be easily manipulated by hand...

Yes, I see. How deeply is it nested ? If it is simply a hypothesis to the theorem, rather than being nested more deeply, could you get what you need in this way ?

val th = "(!!x. x = t ==> ?P (?y x)) ==> ?Q" : Thm.thm
> val th' = rule_by_tactic (hyp_subst_tac 1) th ;
val th' = "(!!x. ?P (?y t)) ==> ?Q" : Thm.thm
