Thank you very much indeed for this contribution. I have
so far only just quickly skimmed your thesis but it appears
to me to be *exactly* on the topic that we are discussing.
And it seems "ambitious" in exactly the kind of way that

I personally am very highly motivated to implement and test
the kind of changes to Axiom that you describe in your thesis.
Now that Axiom is open source and we have a small (but growing)
body of Axiom expertise available here, I think it would be
great to carry out the kind of project that your thesis

Tim, can we make some arrangement, e.g. a new CVS development
