Again, we've never had hash tables. If you want to treat struct as an
associative array, it would require more work.

If you really insist, I would be happy to accept patches to make
struct fields be arbitrary strings, with some warning about how the
code is Matlab incompatible.

If we want to get Matlab-compatible bona-fide hash tables, this would
probably require implementing Matlab's Java-like containers, but I
think classdef might be a prerequisite.
