Follow-up Comment #1, patch #9632 (project octave):

Hi, it looks like it's been a couple of years since you submitted this with no
interested responses. The general package is maintained, but I'm not sure
whether the maintainer is interested in adding yet more functions to such a
vague package.

As with patch #9631, I would encourage you to maintain this function in your
own external package or repository if you find it useful. It is much easier to
maintain your own package to your own standards than it is to find another
volunteer to care as much about your code as you do.

For special purpose functions, I would much rather see a variety of external
special purpose packages developed and maintained in a distributed manner,
than see a variety of odd functions dumped into a nondescript package called
"general" or "miscellaneous".

I am personally considering creating a few more external packages of my own,
with functions for specific file formats, interacting with web services,
wrapping Linux system calls, and so on, rather than try to shoehorn them into
Octave or into an existing Octave Forge package.
