I think that was always the intent of the design of Axiom/XL
(aka. Aldor). ;)

Apparently Tim is not so convinced of the future of Aldor. :(

I have not heard anything from Dr. Watt, but I did have some
communications with Mike Dewar of NAG that indicated that NAG is
in favour of making Aldor open source given "any reasonable
proposal" and "subject to certain basic safeguards". I am sure
that Mike is aware of the Free Aldor page on the Axiom Wiki.

I consider this a very positive sign. :)
