There are plugins to let R import/export its data in the standard HDF5
format (according to, and I wrote a
patch to let Octave use HDF5 files as a native binary file format

Right now, you have to apply this patch yourself to the CVS sources (or
maybe it will work on the 2.1.x development sources).  Hopefully, it will
be integrated soon into 2.1.x by JWE, and Octave will reap the benefits of
supporting a standard file format for scientific data.
