Note that any change of the physical environment needs to happen in
administrative tools like "isabelle ocaml_setup": there is an implicit
assumption that there is only one administrator doing one thing at a
time. (E.g. in "isabelle build" and its physical update of heap and db

In contrast, the parallel Isabelle/ML world cannot write to the global
file-system, without causing big problems. We have pending issues with
AFP entries that violate this principle: maybe we manage to put it all
into shape for the Isabelle2019 release, using stateless operations from
Export/Generated_Files in ML for the 'codegen' command in particular.
