This was fairly easy.  I added the new capability here http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/30d4645ecb98.  Fixed, closing report.

A follow-up from bug #44324 : while not explicitly documented with Matlab, it is possible to call close(...,'force') with the first argument being a figure handle, while Octave only accepts 'all':

>> close(figure,'force')
error: close: first argument must be "all" with "hidden" or "force"
error: called from
    close at line 85 column 7

Would it be ok to allow this particular syntax?
