For interacting with gnome-shell in Gnome 3, it would be helpful if each
figure window had a WM_CLASS of "Octave".  That way gnome-shell could group
them all under a "Octave" item on the dash
(https://live.gnome.org/GnomeShell/ApplicationBased).  Currently each figure
generates a new icon.

If I get around to it, I might try to patch this, but I'll open in bug in case
I don't.


More info:

Here is what xprop says for the various backends:

  currently no wm_class property at all.


  untested, I've never learned how to use this backend.

(FWIW, Matlab also has this problem, e.g.,

Ipython and matplotlib do not: there the WM_CLASS is set to "ipython",
"IPython" (which is why I propose Octave use "Octave").
