Re: [isabelle] tactic in Eisbach method

Currently there is no standard way to directly access the run-time context inside of an Eisbach method. In general the use of the "tactic" method in Eisbach is not well supported, mostly
due to not handling ML antiquotations as one might expect. The usual approach here is indeed to first lift your underlying tactic into a method with method_setup.

Is there a way to access the dynamic context from within an Eisbach method definition? Or do I have to wrap the tactic expression in a method definition first?
