Where would octave load the attributes to? These are attributes of the
variables in the HDF5 file itself and so conceptually it is hard to see
how octave would load them except if all values loaded from an HDF5 file
loaded as a structure and the attributes were elements of this
structure. However this would make something like

A = [1,2;3,4];
save -hdf5 test.mat A
clear A
load test.mat

return a structure for A, and so this is undesirable.. I think your idea
of a system call to h5dump is probably the best thing..
