Sorry, missed all this, because I was away (and the rest of NICTA had a quite busy week).

Good question. I did not, I assumed others in the group did. Will double-check this week on Isabelle2013-2 RC.

Neither. It is somewhat useful, but the main use case for WWW_Find is with images that are potentially too big to build yourself or that you don’t have on your machine for some other reason (e.g. too big for a laptop or small desktop).

If the find_theorems panel could connect to a remote resource similar to sledgehammer's remote provers, we could remove WWW_Find.
