As for working with S-expressions, you get pretty close
with FullForm in Mathematica:


However it might be worth checking whether Maxima has support
for S-expression input. If not, it would be much, much simpler
to implement S-expression for Maxima, than reimplementing
an entire symbolic algebra system in Racket.
