this just runs a lisp command. write a lisp function that delivers the
help text you find useful and we can integrate it into the system easily.
you probably don't even need axiom loaded to write the command. most of
the information axiom knows comes from the databases. there is a standalone
program called 'asq' which knows how to look up answers in the databases.

help text for 'if', etc would have to be written which is the hard part.
making it work inside the system is easy.
