[Maxima] MathML to Maxima conversion

strictly speaking Maxima cannot be converted into semantic MathML because
Maxima is semantically richer.
If you want to convert the presentation of something
like sin(x)+y into presentation MathML, and from MathML into Maxima,
that's possible, but that's essentially display hacking.
(It is possible to replace Maxima with Maple or Mathematica, and the
statements above are still true).
If you want to have a web interface that allows you to send
commands to Maxima, it seems to me to be a bad idea to use
MathML as a conduit, since the conversion to MathML will
either be lossy, or pointless (for example if the full command
text is encoded, perhaps as a comment, and then parsed by Maxima.)
See especially SAGE among projects here:
