While integrals returned unevaluated by FriCAS are thereby declared
non-integrable in elementary terms, occasional error exits or endless
computations have no such implication. One may then only rephrase the
integral and try again.

There have also been bugs causing integrals to be mistakenly returned
unevaluated; thus INT(x/((3*x^2 + 2*SQRT(3) - 3)*SQRT(x^3 - x)), x) was
declared non-integrable in elementary terms by FriCAS version 1.3.0 and
