No flaws.

Long time ago I wrote an extension to then non-GPL ghostript and another
extension to GPL gimp-print - both modified pieces were meant to work

I heard the same concerns about possible GPL violation and bundling.

I even distributed the whole thing in a single tarball, but in different
subdirectories - because of the single tarball there were concerns about

However, my changes to GPL code were such that it could still be built and
still could function without the non-GPL code, and it was enough to convince
the community there was no bundling.

So, just put your stuff even on the same server with 'octave' code - as long
as one can build 'octave' code without your code you're OK. Since you're
going to develop a plugin, building 'octave' without your code would still
be possible exactly the same way it is possible today.

Don't let intrusive freedom overwhelm you :-).
