Look at Octave's concat function:

Octave only knows how to concatenate its own types and user-defined
Octave classes (defined from m-files). For the latter, it calls
do_class_concat, and the first thing it does is look up in the symbol
table a concatenation function:

So it seems to me that what you should do is ensure that Octave thinks
that your new type is a user-defined class and to register in the
symbol table a concatenation method for it.

Admittedly, perhaps we should patch Octave itself so it's more
flexible for user-defined types, since the fixed package has to work
around this by defining its own concat function in an m-file.
