I believe TeXmacs is intended as a general-purpose math front-end.
Unfortunately the reaction I hear is that TeXmacs presents itself
as an editor rather than a notebook. The look-and-feel is different.
Editors are like wives, you usually only have one and it is very
hard to change.

It is possible to use the TeXmacs sources to get 90% of the work
done and change the presentation to be more notebook-like. It seems,
based on my limited discussions, that the key issues are the folding
paradigm and the notebook-to-pamphlet data compatibility (i.e. changing
the notebook changes the pamphlet and vice-versa).

Bill Page's wiki might be an interesting alternative path. I tried to
write a webpage that "folds" but my javascript isn't up to the task.
And I'm still pondering how to get the wiki pages back into the 
booklet/pamphlet/tex format. Ideally you could change the book in the
wiki and have it reflected in the pdf.
