Currently there are at least two name clashes: rows.m and table.m (by  
the way, is there any automatic way of detecting name clashes?).

There is no good reason for these name clashes; the only reason is  
that Dynare is mainly developed under Matlab, and Octave doesn't  
complain about clashes.

Should I fix these right now (it is probably easy to rename them to  
dynrows.m and dyntable.m respectively) ?

I have committed it to the SVN.

By the way I have also moved "rcond.m", a rough replacement for  
Matlab's rcond, to $(MDIR) (I don't wan't it in  
/usr/share/dynare/matlab because of Matlab users).

So, except if you think that I should deal now with name clashes, I'm  
ready for the upload to unstable.
