Don't know about that either as it has issues. I suppose we
could extend axiom with a )bugreport function to write out
a flat file with the required info (including some cached
error messages from lisp and the interpreter?)

CCL has certain functions it "protects" and can't be redefined.
This is left over from the NAG implementation. I plan to fix it
one day but it gives axiom an air of mystery and makes it seem
more complex than it is :-)
