So all this intro is to ask, why do you think Octave is not as 'good' as Scipy
or R? This was to me coming from you as a Octave developer, and I would like
to know more if possible...

(Never looked at R, but I do write in python a lot)

It's not a problem when you write one-off scripts no one will ever see. It's a problem when somebody else is told to take your "code" and turn it into a web service. Or plug it into a workflow.

Does $_=($1!qw'^(.)$'\1'i) look simple and intuitive to you? You can write perl in any language, as the saying goes, but some of them make it harder then others. Matlab isn't one of those, python is.
