Subject: [gentoo-science] octave forge

Bug #179885 [1] is the tracker for the octave forge split ebuilds. I 
attached to it some ebuilds, nearly all of the remaining packages, but 
nobody seems to care, despite being a blocker for gcc-4.3 stabilization 
and with an ancient octave-forge in portage that doesn't work with the 
non-ancient octave-3*.

Pinging markusle aside, there are a lot of forge packages that shouldn't 
monopolize the sci-mathematics category, so something must be made. 
Possible solutions:

1.- Do nothing, thats not a problem.
2.- Create a new category à la dev-texlive, something like sci-octave.
3.- Create a g-cpan-like program for this, preferably faster than the 
unexistent cran one.

My vote is for option 2. Comments?
