As a nice side effect, we can now do stuff like install python and sympy

pacman -Sy
pacman -S python3-pip
pip install sympy

If I've understood correctly, you mean the end-user can do that Octave is installed. But where does she type those commands? Can she do `system('pacman -Sy')` from within Octave?

Anyway, certainly sounds like good news for the Symbolic package (and others) with external dependencies. If someone can test all this and document it (e.g., at [1]) it would be much appreciated!
