I have some limited experience with Haskell literate programs.  Haskell
does not provide any mechanism to move chunks in literate programs, but
in practice it is not at all an issue: since definitions are almost
invariably short and can appear in any order, there are few constraints
on natural writing style.  Axiom may well be the same way, with the
possible exception of the interface/implementation split.
