This changeset (http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/8b795293c050) gets Octave most of the way there.  The best permanent solution, however, would be to use the display routines within Octave for formatting, rather than the C++ standard library.

Sample code:

rand ("state", 1);
y = rand + 0:10;
plot (1:10);
set (gca, 'ytick', y)

The number of significant digits varies from 6 to 7, while Matlab or Octave's own disp() routine show just 5.
