Colin,
I have main/general/command.cc in octave-forge (http://octave.sf.net) which
takes a list of names and tags them so that the parse will treat them as
commands rather than functions. I got it working for m-files but not for
builtins. IIRC this was for octave 2.1.30 or so, and subsequent changes
to octave have broken it.

BTW, I have a version of edit.m on octave-forge. Feel free to improve
upon it.
