If my proposal seems too Windows-specific or too complicated to implement or
inadequate, the minimum I would need for the Rosetta CD would be the 
possibility for
tm_axiom.exe to read whether it must use texbreaker or not, from a user writable
place, so either from a file in USERPROFILE or ALLUSERSPROFILE directories, or
from memory through an environment variable TM_AXIOM containing some instruction
specific to your version, say "texbreaker=y" or "texbreaker=n", or anything you 
appropriate, and silently ignore anything else to eliminate the possibility of 
some other
program defining also a TM_AXIOM env var. Otherwise, I would have to put all 
in texmacs/plugins/axiom because Andrei Grozin's (cygwin) tm_axiom seems not to
read the AXIOM env var, or add its location to the  PATH, which I prefer to 
avoid, as it
is a source of potential problems (in my opinion). Technically, putting Axiom 
in a
TeXmacs subdir is sufficient to have a working Rosetta CD, but it would be more
satisfactory to be able to put it in a more logical place.

Thanks a lot in advance.
Best wishes
