I reiterate what Matthias said and suggest to Jason that as he goes
along with Matlab in his classes create a webpage of the
datastructures and functions over those that would be required (a
technical todo list). This would be a simple way of someone picking up
one of these items and implementing it quickly to add it to the
project. Since matlab is, I guess, a big language, it is better the
burden with the community than thinking of doing it as a whole in a

I would guess that some of the items of that todo list would be just
importing and reexporting particular functions already available in
