How about a general Isar method combinator that manipulates the "using"
slot? E.g. called "use":

  by (use facts in simp)
  by (use facts in auto simp: ...)
  by (use [[simproc foo]] in simp)

That would cover many similar situations that have accumulated in the
past few years.

At this stage it is independently of Eisbach.
