What I suggested was a possible cause of the SoC result - that there
are very few students interested in CAS work. I also mentioned that I
was only listing possible causes without having data to back them up.
I am not arguing that IS the case, only suggesting it as a possible
casue of lack of SoC interest (if it WERE true, it would explain it - I
do not know if it is true.) From our standpoint, lack of CAS interest
vs. lack of Axiom/Lisp interest would look pretty much the same in
terms of project results.

Well, that's good news.
