Yes, I think there is likely to be a BIG demand for it.
Already the preliminary versions of Axiom for windows have
been downloaded more that 550 times in just 20 days. See

and the daily rate of downloads continues to be quite high.
I would fully expect that considerably more than half of
these windows users would prefer the TeXmacs interface to
Axiom over the limitations of the native Axiom interface.

The NSIS installed that Dan Martens uses with WinTexmacs
and which he helped me setup for Axiom does a remarkably
good job of compressing binary files (typically as much
as 1/10 the original size). So I expect a combined TeXmacs+
Axiom for Windows would be less than 40 Mb. in size - not
too bad for those with high speed connections.

I would be very interested if you could prepare such a
combined installer.
