[Frama-c-discuss] What is the point of ``All models'' in Alt-Ergo?

By default, to prove a goal from a set of hypotheses, Alt-Ergo negates
the goal and attempts to establish unsatisfiability.

With the experimental and undocument options related to "models", the
goal is not negated anymore, hence the wrong results you get. They are
not supposed to be used from Frama-C or Why3.

Curiosity is of course good for research, but remember that sometimes
experiments can produce a "boom".
