Hmm.  If you are on the side that says full compatibility is critical,
I guess we may have a burning bridge in between us.  :-)

Don't we already have some useful core subset?  And aren't people
constantly complaining that this or that favorite feature of theirs is
missing from Octave?  Isn't that likely to just continue to get worse
as more people start using whatever new features are in Matlab 6 and 7
and 8 and ...?
