I know about quadpack :)
However I was thinking more along the lines of some
"numerical_integrate" which calles the appropriate quadpack routine,
depending on what kind of problem the user stated (finite/infinite,
zero function simplification ..). Andrej V. has written a function
"nintegrate" which does just that, but it is not included in maxima..
Quadpack is useful indeed, just not very ergonomic, when user has to
look up fortran function names depending on what kind of integral he
has. This could be automated..
