OK, thanks for mentioning it -- the more interest there is in
the feature, the more likely it is to be done ....

I have some ideas about disabling asksign but I haven't
gotten very far. Sorry about that.

I suspect that learning Lisp would be pretty easy for you.
Maxima OTOH is a fairly strange program, but, if you'd
like to help, we would be glad to have you on board.

Let us know when you get your web site going again
and I'll put a link on the related projects page.

Thanks for your interest in Maxima,
Robert Dodier
