I proposed this change more than year ago, but at that time there
were concerns that it will create trouble for external software.
However, for more than year we install 'fricas' script and
IMHO this is enough time for others to adapt software.
FYI, the old tread is at:
Potentially affected external software mentioned in that thread
- FriCAS mode for Emacs
- Sage interface
- Texmas interface
- Media Wiki interface
IIUC the last two use AXIOMsys directly, so in fact the change
below does not affect them. FriCAS mode was adjusted for some
time and there is now proposed patch to adjust Sage interface.
So I think there is no more reason postpone the change.

Go for it.
