- Category set to CoCoA-4 function to be added
- Target version set to CoCoA-5.1.0 Easter14
In CoCoALib we have
intersect, so we have the same name in CoCoA-5.
Intersection just for backward compatibility, so that's the reason why it is just in the capitalized version.
However I have no strong feeling about whether or not to have also

The clean solution would be to have
intersect doing what
Intersection used to do.
intersect for IDEAL is implemented (rightly so) in C++, but for
LIST (and also caring for the IDEAL case) is implemented in a package (a bit more tedious to do it in Interpreter/BuiltInFunctions).
So implement it in BuiltInFunctions for LIST and clean-up!
But not urgent...
