[FOM] Formalisation of the Banach fixed point theorem and the Picard-Lindelöf theorem

I cannot speak directly to the question of which formalization the QED
manifesto is referring to, but if you are looking for alternative
formalizations of those theorems, Metamath has a formalization of the
Banach Fixed Point theorem at http://us.metamath.org/mpegif/bfp.html .
