Not currently - I think GCL still has ANSI issues to work out.  I'm
sure it will happen at some point, but the McCLIM team has focused on
implimenting the spec first, and porting will probably come later. 
(Although, I've never actually tried on the newer CVS ansi images -
perhaps it would be simpler than I think.)

Agreed.  :-).  I imagine you probably have lots if ideas, but I had an
idea for a "parenthesis matching plus" GUI mode to help people entering
expressions keep track of nesting.  Syntax used is Maxima's but it
would probably work the same way for Axiom, if you're interested.

We bounced a lot of GUI thoughts back and forth on the Maxima list
before we decided we should get a math program built :-).  Worth
keeping an eye on are the STIX fonts ( which
hopefully could someday do for an McCLIM gui what Mathematica's fonts
do for their UI, only hopefully looking better while doing it ;-).
