Thank you. :) Well, *I* only wanted a simple array of structures, with
elementary iterator (you helped me with one, thank you).

You make a strong case, but a case of what? What you demonstrate might be
either the issue of syntax, if guys making Octave decided to copy similar
feature of Matlab verbatim; or it might be a case of semantics, like you
say, if the implementation is faulty. The docs are silent or cryptic. :)

Personally, I'd like to have in Octave a capabilities on the lines of what I
mentioned here:

...even if it diverted Octave's capabilities from those of Matlab.
