Indeed, the "new boot" is much more comfortable than "old boot", in
many respects.  It has a preliminary support for (dynamic)
type-checking, algebra datatype and pattern matching. 

I don't think there is much code in Axiom that takes advantage of the 
features of "new boot".

I believe I understand enough of it to start documenting it properly.
Very interestingly, it has much ressemblance with core Haskell.

However, the "new boot" still needs some tuning, but I prefer it over
the "old boot".
