 What about Scratchpad? If I've got the history right all of these
 systems might be considered descendants of Scratchpad, and I don't think
 there is any longer a product called Scratchpad to be confused with
 them? Or perhaps ScratchpadType systems if that's better?
Technically AXIOM  all caps  isn't owned by any of the projects.
I'd prefer to stick to it.
At a recent NSF workshop, I spoke with some people directly invoved in
making AXIOM open source. From what I understand, the claim that
someone other than NAG owns Axiom may be a joke. Furthermore, I also
learnt that `Open Axiom' or `OpenAxiom' was the name that was
originally proposed. I wasn't aware of that fact.
