Maybe even a sort of list of variables with checkboxes; to allow hard-to-filter sets of variables (disjoint filtered sets) shown only (very handy when debugging)

But this may be complicated as variables can appear and disappear on the fly when stepping trough a function or script.

All of the variables in the active workspace are currently shown in the Worspace window. It is desirable to have a way to filter the results and only show interesting ones.

In the CLI version of Octave this is done by using 'who <pattern>'. Try 'help who' for a description and 'help clear' for the syntax of the pattern. It would be nice to add a bar where this pattern could be entered and have the results automatically filtered. Presumably it could even speed up performance if not every variable that changed needed to be updated within Octave.
