Tobias pointed out to me that list_all2 actually existed long before
the new datatype package, which just happens to define the constant
now automatically as it is the natural relator for lists.

As I found out by a more precise look at the history, Tobias defined
the list_all2 constant already in January 2000, i.e., in changeset
8115:c802042066e8 [1]. So the reason that there is no setup for
list_all2 is probably due to the fact that I did not come across an
example for the predicate compiler that uses list_all2 in 2009-2012;
even though Andreas Lochbihler and I used the predicate compiler
heavily for making the Jinja with threads semantics executable.

I have put it on my todo list to add the setup for list_all2 for the
predicate compiler in HOL-Main; it will happen eventually.
