Dear Tim,

curiously, the clifford package emerged out of the mind of Rafal whene

refereeing a paper based on extensive mathematica computations. Since he

had no chance to recalculate or understand, he programed a set of maple

(just that was on his computer) routines to check the claims (which were

found true by teh way), having the code, and the effort done, he embarked

to compleete the functionality, by now, over 120 functions and over 750

pasges of documentation shipping with the package, where you will find

even unpublished math, so I hope for such a future for AXIOM, but as you

mention it needs to be portable on the basis of peopel not program code.
