This feature request has already been reported as bug #32088. I'm closing this report as a duplicate of that one. Please continue any discussion or propose patches to that still-open bug report.

MATLAB's "which" command accepts an "-all" modifier which, if requested, returns all instances of a given function name on the search path. For instance, "which norm -all" on my system yields this:

built-in (/Applications/MATLAB_R2013b.app/toolbox/matlab/matfun/@single/norm)  % single method
built-in (/Applications/MATLAB_R2013b.app/toolbox/matlab/matfun/@double/norm)  % double method
/Users/mcgrant/Projects/CVX/trunk/builtins/@cvx/norm.m                         % cvx method

I use this capability in a couple of different places in CVX. I suppose I can't offer a reason why this should be a critical fix but if I can offer a patch to _which_ in corefcn/help.cc, would y'all accept it? I have someone I might be able to put on the case; I'm going to point him to this bug report right now.
