-- 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 ```          (%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) ```
