I can't be sure, but my guess is probably not.

Probably nearly every file that does indexing on Array objects.

Yes, but it will probably take some time.  Of course, it might happen
sooner if other people help.  If you are interested in helping with
these changes, please get in touch with me, or discuss your ideas on
the octave-maintainers list.
