I have designed, simulated, and implemented a mixed
analog/digital/software system using (Icarus) Verilog
and C.  Attempts by others to accomplish this using
Matlab, Simulink, and all manner of expensive plug-ins
never amounted to much.

Oh, and the initial feasibility check was done with Octave.

I fully agree.  And I personally have made the choice
to program using tools that I have control over.
