Thanks. The `Mascyma' versus `Macsyma' subtlety escaped my scrutiny :-).
Their CVS server (the only download choice) is not responding. So I'll
forget "Mascyma" for now. Maxima does work, that's a lot already! :-) I
perused what I could find about Python on algebra or symbolic calculus,
and nothing I saw, so far, stands even a pale comparison with Maxima.
