Agreed. Most applications are installed into a standard location
and many even make entries in the Windows registry. But all of
that is quite foriegn to unix developers (although some unix/linux
distributions are becoming more standardized, e.g. debian).

The question is: what to look for. Should it look for the actual
program itself (e.g. AXIOMsys as the Linux version currently does,
even though it can not use it directly)? Or should it look for
the interface program? Up until recently the interface programs
were considered by the TeXmacs developers as part of the TeXmacs
system and not part of the external system. But if some external
systems begin to develop their own TeXmacs-specific interfaces,
(such as the Axiom developers and now comtemplating) then it would
make more sense for TeXmacs to look for the interface program.
