Let me echo the praise you're getting; this is very nice.

It's a pain; is it causing problems?  I think it should be kept in,
but for the time being (until someone needs it for EAxiom or
something) it could be made to do nothing by commenting out
`axiom-wait-for-output' and replace it by a function with the same
name which does nothing.  Or even make it configurable:
make a variable `axiom-output-wait' or something, and 
  (defun axiom-wait-for-output ()
     (if axiom-output-wait
          previous definition

This has nothing to do with waiting for output, or even Emacs.  Axiom
will do that when called with the -noclef option; I have no idea why.
