Of course, that is a post-condition that should *also* hold in the final algorithm, and indeed I have formulated this using the Permut predicate from the Jessie tutorial. I only left it out here, because it didn’t change the result and it shouldn’t be a necessary condition. After all, the contract I gave would be fulfilled by a function that sets a[end-1] to INT_MAX. But doing nothing is not such a function and WP shouldn’t be able to prove that the post-condition holds.
