[Axiom-developer] Boot and Lisp for Axiom implementation

  I see  that there has been some effort invested in rewriting the
Boot codes in Lisp. I believe that is a fundamental mistake.  Even
though Boot is a syntactic sugar over Lisp, it apears through
experiments I conducted here on (non-representative) sample that
students get quickly their mind wrapped around the Boot code than the
Lisp equivalent; mostly -- I suspect -- because of the structural
pattern matching, and structured Boot operators.
