I agree with ng0 that Octave and its GUI interface should be kept in
separate packages, as the difference in size is more than 5000 MiB.
I also agree that the GUI package should be named "octave", but I don't
know whether the CLI package should be named "octave-minimal" or
"octave-cli".  I find myself leaning toward "octave-cli" because the CLI
package does include some non-essential dependencies.
