I tweaked your changeset to also warn when '-painters' and '-opengl' are used.  See http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/6b78feb92f53.

Can you file a separate issue about legends and transparency when printing?

I agree this is low-priority - patch attached though (silently ignore -painters and -opengl, and display a warning for -noui).

This makes me notice that the background of a legend is transparent when printed instead of white.

These are all low-priority Matlab Compatibility items.  It might be nice, as you said, to just ignore them and issue a warning.

The print() function allows options '-noui', '-painters','-opengl':
At the moment, an error is returned if any one of these options is used in Octave: could a warning be displayed instead and the option be ignored? Are the options '-painters'/'-opengl' anyway not relevant for Octave?
