Theorem mtp-xor 1542
 Description: Modus tollendo ponens (original exclusive-or version), aka disjunctive syllogism, one of the five "indemonstrables" in Stoic logic. The rule says, "if is not true, and either or (exclusively) are true, then must be true." Today the name "modus tollendo ponens" often refers to a variant, the inclusive-or version as defined in mtp-or 1544. See rule 3 on [Lopez-Astorga] p. 12 (note that the "or" is the same as mpto2 1540, that is, it is exclusive-or df-xor 1311), rule 3 of [Sanford] p. 39 (where it is not as clearly stated which kind of "or" is used but it appears to be in the same sense as mpto2 1540), and rule A5 in [Hitchcock] p. 5 (exclusive-or is expressly used).
