(1) Boot is *essentially* a syntactic convenience and other 
    administrative stuff over Lisp.  The translation is pretty
    straightforward.  So a claim that the equivalence between data 
    and program is lost for the prupose of Axiom needs some evidence --
    otherwise, yes one could just as well argue that pigs can fly.

(2) Yes, unfortunately I've gotten some other more pressing issues
    to sort out today (and probably the next few weeks, but I hope they
    won't keep me busy all the time).  
    [ They affect millions of people, far more than Axiom and Boot ?-) ]
