Well, you could have a key to change the keymap: M-up changes from
axiom-mode-map to axiom-paint-map, for example.  Or bind keys to
functions that behave like (if in-some-region (action-1) (action-2)).
I was looking through previous messages, and I don't know what the
`paint' is supposed to do.  Is `b' supposed to change the character
after point to blue, for example?  Why?
