Have you given any thought about how to package separately licensed
work such as this for inclusion into Axiom? As far as I know at the
present time none of the Axiom variants have an integral facility to
install optional library packages after installation. It would be nice
to be able to create a tarball in a format that was understood by some
')install ...' command.

Apparently in order to use a package like GUESS in the same manner as
if it had been installed during the Axiom build, it would be necessary
to at least update the database files. How can we do this?
