mathaction is on the critical path, or so you've convinced me.  we
need to get it on the desktop, rework axiom to have a browser front
end, make "drag and drop" programs work. and we need it standalone so
we can get the doyen idea (a bootable liveCD science platform)
demonstrated. doyen exists on sourceforge (doyencd project). i can
make bootable cds that interact with axiom thru a browser but i don't
have a mathaction interface. making mathaction work on the desktop is
important for future use. 

i've made the proceedings CDs for the last 2 ISSAC conferences.
i expect to make the third. but this time i'd like to demonstrate
a doyen science platform that runs axiom in a browser and can do
drag-and-drop program installation. the CD push begins in may so
we'd need to demonstrate the ability by then.

if we can get computer algebra working on a doyen cd then we can
construct web pages for various sciences that demonstrate the idea
of a doyen science platform. once we do that we can have a CD at
every science conference. 

and if the "drag-and-drop" works with literate programs we can show
that conference papers can be "executable" and demonstrate real
results by executing on the user's laptop. this will make "showing
the program" as important to computational science as "showing the proof"
is to mathematics.

and, if we get lucky, google will fund it :-)
