Hmm. I'm even less sure about this now than I used to be.

I think a lot of this stuff is actually documented in the manual.

No, but you can start Octave with --traditional (or, if you prefer,
--braindead) and that will set all the variables so that you will get
the most Matlab-like behavior by default.
I think there is a list of these in the manual. Try
octave> help -i braindead
Searching the manual for `compatibility' might also work.
