In src/octave.cc, I read the following:

    execute_startup_files ();
    initialize_history (read_history_file);

Is there a strong reason for the order of execution above?  If it was

    initialize_history (read_history_file);
    execute_startup_files ();

then the history could be manipulated in startup files, like adding timestamps
or the like.  I have not investigated the possible side effects of this
reversal, though, but it could be a beneficial change.
