This is probably a good idea.  Back in the day, there was no standard
"docdir", but now this is even mentioned in the GNU coding standards,
so I suppose it is time for Octave to catch up.  Would someone like to
write a patch to arrange for useful things from the examples directory
to be installed?  I think $docdir/octave-VERSION is OK.
