In the case of Axiom (the original project) there is still no project I
am aware of that offers an alternative (long term goals, rigorous
adherence to and development of literate programming, heavy use of
Lisp, etc.)  My understanding is the definition of Axiom as a project
is strongly tied to the GOALS, not so much the current state of the
code base at any one time.

The forks of Axiom share a lot of similar code at present, but I expect
them to diverge more and more as the years pass - their goals are
different.  And that's OK, but I can understand Tim's wanting to keep
the Axiom project's eye on the ball, so to speak.
