What is a "sequence"? As far as I know this is not defined in
Axiom. Do mean that some types should be automatically coercible
to type List? Note that:

  V:=vector [1,2,3]
  [i for i in V::List Integer]

works in the Axiom interpreter but it is not clear to me exactly
where this conversion is defined.
