I agree that when there is a choice we should go with MATLAB compatibility.  
reason is that this is what sets Octave apart from similar projects.  Scilab is 
a good piece of code as well but not as MATLAB compatible as Octave.  For 
it doesn't make a lot of difference because I don't even have MATLAB on my 
machine.  However when I share code with colleagues it's nice to have something 
that will run on MATLAB as well.  

There is a downside to this since MATLAB doesn't do everything the right way so 
bug-for-bug compatibility may not be desirable.
