I agree that it would be much better to replace clef by the de-facto standard, readline. But... readline is GPL (not LGPL, and on purpose). This will make axiom+readline to be distributable only under GPL. (Absolutely OK for me, but some people may not like this).

If there will be any responces, please, switch to axiom-legal.
