Yes indeed. And experience tells me that mathematicians in general and me in
particular are especially irrational beings...

I would regard email exchange as part of the web. Email and MathAction however
differ (for me) in one important point: I read email using emacs, and I browse
MathAction using Konqueror. Very different feeling!

It seems that we both think that MathAction should get a little more attention.
Probably it would be good indeed to notify the axiom mailing lists when major
changes have been done to MathAction. I think I'll volonteer.
