Actually the Sage .spkg was named AxiomForSage or some such.
After William and I exchanged emails I believe he renamed the .spkg 
to use FricasForSage but I've been too busy to check. From reading
the list it appears that Fricas is built directly from the lisp
but this is just Axiom's "int" directory's whole purpose in life.

Since I intend to promote the new browser-based hyperdoc to
the Sage audience it is important to distinguish the systems.
Unless OpenAxiom and Fricas implement the )browse machinery 
there will be confusion.
