Well, we do not have an official stable Poly/ML 5.4 for Isabelle yet.

5.4 has a problem with bigints in certain situations, so it would need at 
least one extra patch from the SVN.  So far I did not find time for 
looking more closely, and official Poly/ML 5.3 is sufficiently stable.

There is no problem to use an internal SVN version of Poly/ML for an 
internal AFP test, if you don't care to know which one it is.  See 
/home/polyml/polyml-svn in the NFS at TUM.
