The conference paper would be of service to those of us attempting 
to convince academic advisors that software development is indeed
a worthy academic aspiration, i.e., one can get pubs from it.
Some are lucky to be in fields where this is taken for granted.
Others, such as myself, are limited to crufty homegrown fortran
solutions, or very expensive, feature poor windows implementations
of those crufty fortran codes.  (I can provide  very specific 
examples of this upon demand.)  As it stands at the current time,
such a paper could not be published in my field.  Even worse,
I get no credit towards a dissertation from the engineering that is
going into the implementation of a numerical modeling code.  

So even an out of date conference paper with octave in the title
is extrememly useful to me.  In fact, it is much more useful than
an up-to-date conference paper _without_ octave in the title. 

My personal interest is not so much in the actual publication as in 
the legitimization of what I am currently doing on the somewhat on the
sly, which would in turn improve the quality of my code.

Thanks for listening,

Dave D
