Re: [isabelle] Algebraic_Numbers

I thought the point was that the part that is duplicated is *not* bulky. If it is, we should think more, but I donât have any better solutions ready.

For comparison, weâre doing this already: since we canât merge multiple parent sessions, all entries that re-use more than one other entry will currently definitely rebuild all of at least one parent anyway. Given that, and the effort Iâm spending periodically to make sure the AFP does not rebuild HOL-Library 100 times each day, I donât think the light part of one entry being rebuilt is a problem.
