The Trager/Bronstein Integration can be broken up into a set of cases.
This is one special case that was not implemented but should be integrable.

One use I expect to have for these pages is test cases. I'm working
on CATS (Computer Algebra Test Suite). The basic idea is to document
some mathematics and then implement the computation in a variety of
systems. The idea is to pool the tedious effort of developing a test
suite so that all the systems can benefit from the effort.

NIST funded a project years ago to do a classification of the various
types of numerical mathematics. There is no corresponding classification
scheme for symbolic mathematics. CATS could form the basis for a scheme
for classification of the mathematics and provide test cases for each

Bill's idea of joining several systems in one page is an important tool
for this kind of work.
