I am not a constructivist.

And, I could accept that a menu entry would insert a forty letter long
identifier in the proof text. My concern is usability, not theoretical
elegance. Coming up with a proof is a challenging task in itself, and
it is better that the user interface helps creating it, and you need
not remember technicalities in order to advance your proof.

What do the developers think?
