PITA.  See the attached diff.

The trouble is that disp() does not print surrounding characters around
strings, and disp() is used by all the print routines in the octave-value
directory.  This is required because disp() might be overloaded by a
user-defined class.  Here's a backtrace showing that display() is called to
print the name tag, which then calls disp(), which then calls the print
routines which are overloaded for a particular octave_value type

Yeah, I see similar issues with the design when looking at how to add the type and dimension info.
