AXIS and EMC2

We intend AXIS to be used with current EMC1 as well as future EMC2 installations.

While all AXIS development so far has been done with EMC1, preliminary tests show that it will need only minor changes to work with EMC2.

In particular the live plot and tool cone don't update while jogging under EMC2 due to a slight difference in the way the EMC2 engine reports the tool position to the frontend. We haven't decided yet how to handle this in AXIS so jogs don't show up in the live plot.

Except for this problem, AXIS seems to be fully functional with EMC2. We'll know more as EMC2 comes along, but it looks like it will be a smooth ride for AXIS users and developers both.
