Being partly author of that report I feel I should strengthen the
reasons for it ("feature request" sounds like "caprice" to me).
With a Matlab compatible `runtests` we will ease the porting of user
created Matlab packages into Octave. This will also speed up the
detection of compatibility issues between ML and Octave.
I know this considerable work, hence I am with Mike on this: mark
`runtests` as missing function, and deprecate the current homonymous
function in Octave.
