The "algebra book" seems like a huge project to me - maybe even
90% of the problem of documenting Axiom. I think it is unlikely
that this can be done in one single "book-sized" volume. Maybe
sub-volumes per major mathematical topic?

Anyway, Ralf if you agree to "take the lead" as Tim suggests
and can apply/refine your ALLPROSE technology to this problem,
then I would be very happy to help with this work under your
