Did you specify selectors? Currently (and unfortunately), the tactics behind "primcorec" require types with "sel_split" theorems, which are generated only for types with selectors and discriminators.

I'll see what I can do. In fact, there's a lot that can and will be done at some point or another, including having us enrich the structure of "list", "option", "sum", and "prod". Today these are BNFs and free constructor types without selectors and discriminators. The next steps are (1) free constructor types with selectors and discriminators; (2) new-style datatypes (either using "datatype_new" or a forthcoming "wrap_datatype_new" command, depending on the type). The latter would allow things like nested-to-mutual recursion through lists.

To me, any report of one of my tools spitting out an exception is a bug report. Even though we know that "primcorec" messaging is not finished; see e.g.
