You could try
    @FootNote { @RefPrint "turing1936" }
but no doubt as things get more interesting it will prove inadequate.
Actually there are ways to make Lout know what the previous reference
was, and hence whether to substitute ibid. or not.  You need to follow
the example of the @Runner symbol, and embed (say) @RefRunner symbols
that hold the tag of the most recent reference; then you can say  
    { @RefRunner&&preceding @Open { @Tag } } @Case {

        mytag @Yield ibid.

        else  @Yield { @RefPrint mytag @RefRunner mytag }

But as I recall there is a lot of weird stuff in those old rules.  I
don't see much likelihood of them getting implemented.  Do any other
software systems support them, does anyone know?
