If for every sequence (x_n) with limit x_0 the limit of the sequence
of difference quotients
(f(x_n) - f(x_0))/(x_n - x_0) exists and is the same in all cases,
then df/dx is defined at x_0.

The function f(x) = x has for every sequence x_n --> x_0 the sequence
of diference quotients
(x_n - x_0)/(x_n - x_0) = 1. The limit is 1 in all cases, and not 0.
