Haeh? axiom.el already derives from comint mode.

If you change to another lisp package, BOOT will change to be the name of this
package, as far as I know.

It would not surprise me at all if there were other prompts, too.

But really, the functionality you want to provide should be nearly independent
of axiom.el:

no, not at all. You have to put the command into a temporary input file, for
example "tmp.input" and then say

)re tmp.input

in the axiom buffer.  I think it would be OK to assume that the "*axiom*"
buffer is in the right state, i.e., that it has the "^(nn) ->" prompt.

Thus, I suggest you write a function

(defun axiom-send-input (str)

that puts str into a temporary file tmp.input (best located in the /tmp
directory or the windows equivalent), then writes ")re /tmp/tmp.input" into the
"*axiom*" buffer and calls axiom-eval.
