Econometrics could go into Statistics, since MLE is well known generally
and GMM is just another name for minimum Chi-square estimation.

I think there are many other potential changes of a similar nature
including splitting up the miscellaneous and general packages, making an
xml package that includes all of the existing tools, etc. However, I
must admit we went the route of simplicity and converted the current
octave-forge directory structure directly into packages. Feel free to do
what you think is necessary to rationalize the situation...

In practice we will have packages by different authors c
overing different parts of the same domains.  I think the
only reasonable long term solution is another level of
hierarchy.  Also, packages such as statistics will become
enormous if they include everything.
