An Axiom entry would probably also be appropriate.

Yes, I don't think there is really a good one yet.  McCLIM has some
sort of 2D graphing capabilities under development, but I don't know
much about it - scigraph I think they call it?

Eurrrg.  I don't know if that has been tested in a serious way in
years.  I recall some discussion about it a while back on the gcl
archives - Camm, if you're on this list can you give us a status

I don't know if tcl/tk is the best environment for a notebook interface
- it would probably be difficult to port a gcl/tcl/tk GUI to other
lisps.  If only gcl support is important than it might be a way to go. 
Otherwise, if a cross-implimentation UI must be developed I'd recommend
McCLIM over tcl/tk - IIRC dealing with the tcl/tk code in xmaxima
wasn't much fun.

Since Maxima is GPL I guess the socket code itself can't be used, but
you might be able to use the technique?

Maybe this would also be of help:
