instructions. I expect that fricas.el would end up being packaged
with Fricas. There is no reason for Waldek to ship axiom.el.

There are no literate forms of and axiom.php that I've
seen (which doesn't mean they don't exist). Until somebody writes
some documentation so the next generation can maintain and expand
them they are not in the queue.

If literate programming were used these could all be maintained from
a single file.

Why isn't there an "algebra.el"?

ALLPROSE is a beautiful piece of work but somebody is going to have
to package it so it fits into the system. It is large, I didn't write
it, and I don't understand it which makes it hard for me to package it.

I had enough trouble trying to make a literate document for the

for the regression machinery and example machinery it is still in the
