[Frama-c-discuss] WP drivers and Why3

I’m interested in the drivers but am a little unclear on the details of how to make them work.
Why3 has some theories in its “theories” directory.  I’m interested in the ones in the file set.why, in particular, Fset and Fsetint.    I’d like to be able to use the predicates and functions defined there in my ACSL contracts (and have those translated appropriately when I use Frama-C+WP+Why3).  

Should I create a WP driver file corresponding to those theories?    Can you show a sample of what goes in the driver file or any other details?    Also, is there an issue with conflicts with the existing ACSL set operations?
