Aside from that debate, I went ahead and pushed the revised patch I posted here to the stable branch.

Have more Octave-only code encourages people to not use Matlab, which is a good thing. We are trying to make sure that people can stop using Matlab, not promote the use of Matlab.

I'd contend the preference for endif et al. should remain as a style guideline for octave's own code.  encouraging users to make their own code incompatible with matlab is counterproductive for octave itself.  but hey, that's just my opinion.

How about the following tweaks to your patch?

Note that "help end" shows the help for the magic indexing end function. This could be argued to be another bug. But since that's the case currently, I backed out your addition of @seealso{end}. Also the end keyword is discouraged in Octave in favor of the specific endif, endfor, etc.
