I feel sympathetic with that concern, but I do not view that so
critical: according to what is currently going on in the repository, now
many contributors are aware to avoid set/pred mixture, and even so have
a personal interest to have the set type constructor back.  For the
black matter outside there, the introduction of the set type constructor
is invasive anyway.
