Now that everything is in-place (and SML/NJ partially happy in 
2bbeab01c0ea) I have realized that despite the import of theory HOL/Main, 
the tool does not depend on HOL at all.

So it could just import Pure, and then be session Spec_Check in 

Thus it would conform to the idea of a general Quickcheck tool for 
Isabelle/ML -- understanding "Isabelle/ML" as the brand name for this 
cutting-edge Standard ML implementation.

Of course we should avoid repeated alternation of source locations. So 
there is a second chance here, but then it should be really right.
