Yes, I see your point. I hadn't thought about how LatexWiki
caches images based on the LaTeX code that generated them.
I agree that the repository of LaTeX generated images plays a
very different role than the files generated for Axiom. In fact
this sort of caching doesn't make sense for Axiom's output since
the relationship of an Axiom command to the LaTeX output it
generates is not fixed. A separate LocalFS directory and a
separate way of constructing file names makes sense.
