According to < http://octave.sourceforge.net/communications/index.html
>, this octave package does not auto-load. I'm not sure how one makes a
package auto-load yet. With the forthcoming release of octave 3.8.0
(right now 3.7.7, sort of a devel or beta level), I'm working on fixing
the octave ports including octave-communications. It will be easier for
everyone if we have "octave" be the 3.6 stable release, and
"octave-devel" be the 3.7+ release -- some packages do not work yet with
3.7.7+, but they will work with 3.6. This effort has been long-overdue
