The previous format used noweb which has many features, none of which
are used in Axiom. I've been slowly eliminating noweb as I rewrite Axiom.

One of the steps was to create a latex chunk environment (the latex code
for the chunk environment is commented in the file books/tangle.lisp)
Once that exists, which is the only really useful feature, everything
else is pure latex. That eliminates the "weave" (noweave) step completely.
