 OK I'll put that in the MATLAB wikibook.

 What about adding :

 "That is to say, Octave can replace Matlab in most circumstances and
 for solving most of the problems solved with Matlab, with the same
 code."
Do you really think this is true? What class of problems is included
in "most"?
I think statements like this (which I think is just a longer way of
saying "clone" while avoiding that word) leads people to believe that
Octave is 100% compatible when it is not, and when there are many
Matlab features that simply do not work with any version of Octave.
