I think the proposed "spring" before the main Axiom meeting in
April would be great time to discuss Axiom graphics and even
to demonstrate some things and experiment with others.

Another excellent reference! Thanks. Man, we have so much wonderful
open source software available now and so little TIME ... :O) I don't
see that there is any other option than to find ways to integrate many
of these tools into an environment what makes them easier to use and
reduces the amount one needs to learn just to get started. Providing
a web interface like MathAction has to Axiom is one possible way.
