The file you point to above is not installed as ~/.octaverc, but in
the $localfcnfiledir, so any changes to it would affect every user.

Are you suggesting that Octave should install a default ~/.octaverc
file for users the first time it runs (presumably only if the file
does not already exist)?

FWIW, my ~/.octaverc file has

  history_file = "~/.octave-history";
  global __disable_lyap_interface_change_warning__;
  global __disable_fopen_interface_change_warning__;

and the last two lines should probably go away since those interfaces
have been changed for a while now, so Octave should be changed to
eliminate the messages.
