Hi Rik,
Thanks for the list, I can write the wrappers.

I strongly disagree about movfun (and movslice) as private functions.
For me the the actually valuable contributions to octave are movfuin
and movslice. Also those are the functions I use in my work (the ones
form matlab are just simple calls to movfun).
If the community decision  is to make movfun private, then I will not
make anymore the effort to comply with the sometimes tedious octave
coding style and keep development outside octave. That is, the burden
of maintenance will 100% to the ones who decided to make it private,
and we will have diverging movfun in the environment.
