Here we are back to the (wrong) assumption that Proof General could 
continue forever, without doing anything.

In the past 3 years of Proof General being "legacy" I have invested 
substantial work just to keep the status quo more or less.  Over more than 
5 years there were calls to arms, to hold the territory of the general, 
but no volunteers ever showed up at proofgeneral-devel at inf.ed.ac.uk.

Without anybody doing anything, the only option to remaining users of 
Proof General is to stick to the last Isabelle version that supported 
it, i.e. when the list of remaining uses of it has become empty.
