A buglet:

octave:1> vtk_demo
octave: relocation error: /usr/lib/octave/site/oct/api-v13/i386-pc-linux-gnu/octaviz/vtkFloatArray.oct: undefined symbol: _ZN20vtkDataArrayTemplateIfE8SetArrayEPfii

The Depends on libvtk4 is insufficient:

edd@basebud:/usr/share/doc/octaviz/examples> wajig show octaviz
Package: octaviz
Version: 0.4.0-9
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.3.2.ds1-4), libgcc1 (>= 1:3.4.1-3), libice6 | xlibs (>>
  4.1.0), libsm6 | xlibs (>> 4.1.0), libstdc++5 (>= 1:3.3.4-1), libvtk4,
  libx11-6 | xlibs (>> 4.1.0), libxext6 | xlibs (>> 4.1.0), libxt6 | xlibs (>>
  4.1.0), octave2.1 (>= 2.1.67)

It should be versioned on libvtk (>= 4.4.2), I suppose, as it works once that
is installed to. (I cheated and installed octaviz on testing; this correctly
requested octave 2.1.67 and should have requested the upgrade to libvtk 4.4
as well.)

Other than that, nice work. Cool to have this.

(Oh, and under KDE, I cannot close the plot windows via the window manager. A
tad annoying ...  They do go away if I quit Octave, but that may not always
be desirable.)
