Sigh, guess i'm gonna have to learn tcl.
I'll look at xmaxima and see what it might require.

I'm looking at what kind of tools there might be to do a notebook.

It's mostly research to see what tools are available to do a GUI
in front of Axiom. I'm at the point of collecting ideas to see
what comes to mind. If we're going to do a new "notebook" we 
might as well design the next generation of notebooks (though
the term is somewhat limiting).
