Well, not sure if the following should really be called a bug, but I believe
it deserves to be corrected anyway.

>From octave 4.2.0, the standard colormap function does not longer accept
'list' as a parameter (till v.4.0.3 it had the effect of showing the list of
built-in color maps). This change is not documented in the NEWS file, although
I guess it has been done to be closer to the Matlab equivalent. Nothing wrong
with this, except that now, 'help colormap' should give the names of the
built-in color maps, as it does in Matlab. We cannot expect users to go though
the source code as the only way to find them, isn't it?
