Thanks for pointing out!  Very interesting to know, but (now take this
as feedback from a naive end-user) I probably won't enable all these
automations seems.  Auto quickcheck and solve_direct are very nice, but
I wouldn't want time-consuming tools (such as Sledgehammer) to run
automatically even while I am still editing a statement.  I made it into
a habit to invoke "try" whenever I've finished writing down a statement.
