Huh, I guess I didn't dig deep enough into the help to find that.  A
quick test confirms that this does what I expect, at least once I call
xrdb to reload the X resource file.  I'll post a follow-up if I run
into any problems later on.   FYI, I'm running Octave on RH Enterprise
v4, 64-bit.  Thanks for the tip.
