thanks for emailing me directly.

Thanks JD for the patch. Does it work for current windows versions (xp<= ver
<= 8.1)?
which version did you test it on?

I usually do not use windows. according
to http://wiki.octave.org/Octave_for_Microsoft_Windows there are several
ways to run octave in windows, which one did you use?

the patch looks harmless in case it does not detect windows, so thanks carne
for applying it.

there are however some other changes which I have not seen until now, which
I want to review before I make a release. specifically, the new package does
not work with octave 3.6 which I think is a problem.

regarding the return values, I agree but that is another discussion, which
maybe better takes place on the maintainers list.
