At this point, there is no much to improve at the boot/lisp internals
per see.  But, you definitely want to integrate the new parser into
the compiler and share more between in the intepreter and the

Also, people should really look at the trace file and try to correct
the algebra files -- there are quite a few bugs there.

I see no fundamental reason why both process should not be threads in
the same problem and therefore bypass the socket stuff.  From my
perspective, that is just another over-engineering aspect of Axiom.
Notice that if you use sockets, the the anti-virus firewall will
consider Axiom as a program that wants access to network and it might
be blocked; then the anti-virus will ask you whether you want to grant
access or not.  That is silly.
