Axiom is actually a collection of processes. The top level process is
sman (superman) which starts and controls other processes, including
AXIOMsys (the interpreter), viewman (the graphics) and hyperdoc.

All of the processes communicate thru sockets.

Viewman does all of the drawing work using X11.
