Well, Maxima has a variety of ways of analyzing and reorganizing
polynomials, including rat (and ratvars), ratcoeff, coeff, factor (with
facexpand on or off), horner, etc. I suppose 'monomials' or
'list_monomials' (analogous to list_nc_monomials) could easily be added to
the facexp package if it's generally useful.
