I support Ralf's view. The axiom.bib.pamphlet file doesn't make
any sense to me.

I like this idea but I think it might need more thought. How do
we want to present this large collection of Axiom documentation
files to a user? How will they navigate? How will this interact,
or will it interact with hyperdoc? Will they be searchable? What
is better, dvi or pdf? Etc.
