Regrettably, I don't have time to devote either.  Heck, I don't have time to
read this mailing list.  But maxima is a very useful tool, so I encourage folks
to follow up with this.  Clearly, the underlying algorithms are the most
important aspects of the tool.  However, a simple GUI front end with basic
on-line help would be a highly desirable addition.  This addition would make
this wonderful tool approachable by a much wider audience.
