Indeed it is for octave, but since it strives ot have matlab 
compatibility, I just wanted to mention that if they did not got around 
doing it yet (it has been 10 years after all), might be useful to put on 
the scipy io wishlist for the python -> matlab bridge and ficuse on 
other issues (like the segfaults).

In any case, I also tried the scipy one, whihc unfortunately were not 
working, then went to octave, to find out it is still an issue in what I 
guess is all projects doing matlab compatibility (else I would have 
exected them to just use whichever solution the first one came up with, 
but anyway).

Still if you need help testing stuff out down the road I don't mind, 
would be helpful rather than calling execute stuff from matlab command line.
