Isolate_wrt_times

-- Option variable: isolate_wrt_times Default value: false

When isolate_wrt_times is true, isolate will also isolate with respect to products. E.g. compare both settings of the switch on

load(functs);
sqrtdispflag:false;
isolate_wrt_times:true;
expr:sqrt(a*x^2 + b*x + 3*x), expand;
map(lambda([y], y), expr);
maplist(lambda([y], if(not(freeof(x, y))) then isolate(y, x) else y), expr);

          (%i1) isolate_wrt_times: true$
          (%i2) isolate (expand ((a+b+c)^2), c);

          (%t2)                          2 a

          (%t3)                          2 b

                                    2            2
          (%t4)                    b  + 2 a b + a

                               2
          (%o4)               c  + %t3 c + %t2 c + %t4
          (%i4) isolate_wrt_times: false$
          (%i5) isolate (expand ((a+b+c)^2), c);
                               2
          (%o5)               c  + 2 b c + 2 a c + %t4

(%o1)                                true
(%i2)
