Well, I did not know about it.  The other fork "OpenAxiom" is already in
the science overlay.  On the other hand, I also don't use axiom.  I'm
just trying to work on bugs assigned to sci-math@g.o.  In the end,
dropping support for the original axiom, given that there is fricas, is
one option to close these bugs.

Sounds good to me, and I think that is the setup axiom developers ship
because Camm Maguire is both: gcl upstream, and gcl's maintainer in
Debian.  He also provides the gcl versions for axiom.
