I'd like to minimize off-site linking in the functionality of the site
(ie. images, css, etc), though links for redirecting the user makes
sense. Offsite linking to the CSS seems to me to create more maintenance
headaches than it solves..

It depends on the package how many functions there are. Also note that
the function reference includes all of the functions from octave as
well, so that it supplies a complete online resource for the
functionality of octave. I don't see how that can combine with the idea
of including the function reference
