It seems that there is a realistic prospect of making hyperdoc
more useful and more reliable. Is there enough interest to warrant
establishing a new branch focusing on hyperdoc-improvements?

There are awk scripts like ht.awk that sound similar to this in
the htex directory that is part of the original Axiom source
distribution (not currently in the Open Source version but could
be if we want them, I think). Where can I find a reference to

I believe that Kai Kaminski worked on some code (in Perl?) to
extract the executable parts of the .ht files as .input files
and then run Axiom to re-generate the Axiom output sections.
I don't know if this work was completed or not. In principle
it is not difficult. Some parts of this would be similar to
what is done on the Axiom wiki to product wiki pages with
embedded Axiom output (using Python).
