It's a pain; is it causing problems? I think it should be kept in,
but for the time being (until someone needs it for EAxiom or
something) it could be made to do nothing by commenting out
`axiom-wait-for-output' and replace it by a function with the same
name which does nothing. Or even make it configurable:
make a variable `axiom-output-wait' or something, and
(defun axiom-wait-for-output ()

This has nothing to do with waiting for output, or even Emacs. Axiom
will do that when called with the -noclef option; I have no idea why.
