2.  I do recall reading, once, that many of the Octave-Forge functions

I install a 2.9.x version I would still need to install Octave-Forge -
but would doing so override some of the functions included in Octave?

Don't quote me on this, but I believe the Debian Octave team backports
some of the 'forge functions to the 2.1 branch in their
octave2.1-forge package:

If you're using any apt-based distro, it's probably safe to install
this package (but caveat downloadus, Debian is not Ubuntu is not
Knoppix is not Mepis, etc). I'm not sure, but I think Octave still
hasn't trickled down to the stable Ubuntu releases, so the unstable
Debian packages should at least mix with no problem with Ubuntu's
