Is it desirable to do The Right Thing?  make

  subst(P, Q, y)

a shortcut for

  { subst_poly(pol, from, to) = 

if the existing algorithms cannot do it (only taking into account the
ordering of variables, so lift will always work w.r.t. 't).

[ BTW, why do I need to put ticks on t?  Why I cannot lift(...,'t)? ]
