Thanks. I think the GCL main developer Camm Maquire would be
strongly motivated to help with ensuring that an ANSI version
of Axiom works with GCL, especially as a means to test and
improve GCL's support for ANSI. As I recall he is away for a
few more weeks but we should expect some comment from him on
this when he returns.
