I wonder if you could make this work with octave.  MATLAB is decidedly
non-Free, and thus I'd expect that any support to interoperate with
MATLAB probably wouldn't be eligble for integration into the tree.

How do you link this in such a way that you can follow the GPL and
distribute it?

It seems like octave has a similar interface (http://wiki.octave.org/wiki.pl?CategoryExternal under OctaveEngine), which could be used in a way very similar to the code I have.

I know that there exists other projects under open licenses that use the MATLAB engine API (pylab, mlabwrap, ruby-matlab, etc.). I'm not well versed in licensing issues, but reading through the MATLAB software license I don't see any issues with linking to the shared objects the interface provides. I'm very inexperienced in this area, so please let me know if I'm incorrect.
