Thanks. Maybe we can just agree that having an API/protocol to the
Axiom core is useful anyway and then implement that. That way we avoid
the discussion about wether we need a canonical GUI or not. The
existence of a well-designed API seems to be a good idea anyway.

I'll try to put up a wiki page for collecting design proposals, use
cases, etc. Furthermore I'll try to document those parts of Axiom that
are directly related to this effort (plotting code, database access,
documentation access, access to the interpreter/compiler etc).
