It is all over the project. What would be the point of literate
documentation, indeed, of using noweb at all, if you didn't plan
to do literate programming? You'll find very few files in Axiom
that are not literate documents at least in form.

If you look at the actual progression of the project you'll
see that it is slowly re-organizing into books. The tutorial
book (vol 1) has been published, the interpreter (vol 5) is being
worked on, the firefox hyperdoc (vol 11) is checked in, and other
books exist.

The ultimate planned form will be similar to Knuth's Tex book or
the Lisp in Small Pieces book rather than a traditional "bag of
files" structure.

This has been debated endlessly on the mailing list so it cannot
come as a surprise.
