The problem is that m-files in the path do not override built-in
functions (or oct-files for that matter).  In this particular case
you could rename Wavelab's reverse to something like Wavelab_reverse, 
and use dispatch from octave-forge to call Wavelab_reverse instead of 
reverse when it receives a matrix.  Something like:


A better solution might be to extend the built-in reverse so that
it handles the common types, and send John a patch.

Long term as octave grows, it would be nice if there were a way to 
limit functions to a private name space of a package, ignoring any 
definitions available elsewhere.
