Currently there are several things where I would like to contribute. Until I 
feel ready to really improve octave I consider this help-list more appropriate 
to find out about existing features. Do you think I should have written it to 
the maintainers list?

This was definitely not what I wanted to pexpress with my question, which was 
meant absolutely neutral. While studying parts of octave's source code I find 
it sometimes confusing, but I have no idea whether it could be improved 
(besides extensions, of course). The reason is that I am neither computer 
scientist nor familiar with compiler design beyond knowledge of bison/flex

or in 2 years...), I'll announce it to the maintainers list.
