I have noticed the following problem:
sage: f = function('f')(x)
sage: var('h')
sage: integrate(exp(h)*exp(x)*f(x),x)
integrate(e^(h + x)*f(x), x)
The workaround seems to be using the `sympy` backend for symbolic integration
sage: integrate(exp(h)*exp(x)*f(x),x,algorithm='sympy')
e^h*integrate(e^x*f(x), x)
which always seems to be a good idea as I learned from @Emmanuel Charpentier over
[here](https://ask.sagemath.org/question/43287/solved-why-does-integratepsiyfyy-return-an-error-but-integratepsityftyy-works/?answer=43297#post-id-43297).
Now I would like to force the use of `algorith='sympy'` for simplifying these `integrate(...)` expressions globally.
Unfortunately, the `simplify()` command does not allow to set this option.
sage: integrate(exp(h)*exp(x)*f(x),x)
integrate(e^(h + x)*f(x), x)
sage: _.simplify()
integrate(e^(h + x)*f(x), x)
**TL;DR** How can I force sage to pull out these type of exponential constants from the integral with the `simplify()` command?
