[isabelle-dev] Non-standard transfer vs. generic transfer

Hi Brian,

I would like to come back to the matter of the non-standard transfer
method in theory src/HOL/NSA/StarDef.thy, or more exactly its name.

With the perspective that in future the generic transfer facilities
(src/HOL/Tools/transfer.ML) could also provide a method "transfer", both
methods have to be distinguished somehow.

What comes to my mind are three options:

a) rename non-standard transfer method to hyper_transfer
b) rename non-standard transfer method to star_transfer
c) or join theories src/HOL/NSA/StarDef.thy and src/HOL/NSA/Star.thy,
such that the resulting full method name is Star.transfer

What's you opinion about this?

Currently, the need is not urgent, but perhaps the upcoming release is a
good opportunity.
