Update of bug #52568 (project octave):

                Severity:              3 - Normal => 2 - Minor              
                Priority:              5 - Normal => 3 - Low                
                  Status:               Need Info => Confirmed              


Follow-up Comment #6:

Apologies for appearing a bit strict :-) that wasn't my intention.

I can clearly perceive the usefulness of lazy evaluation by str2func in other
cases as well.
However, as the thread in comment #3 shows, this soon gets one in a morass of
arbitrary choices, inconsistencies and completely undocumented Matlab

For the time being I'll just lower priority & severity; perhaps one of the
core devs wants to close it as "won't fix".
