I, for one, am working towards OpenAxiom/ECL support.  There is a long
way to get there but this is just to let you know it is on my priority
list.  In particular, I would like to link my C/C++ libraries with
Axiom and ECL seems to be one the Lisps that provide easy path to
that.  Keep an eye on 


Many thanks for your reports.
