But as a Debian user, I am glad so many packages are just an 'apt-get
install' command away. As a Debian maintainer, I try to make that choice available to others via the packages I look after. Now, as for choice, I
think these aren't even available in other distros:

octave-ci - Contributed functions for the GNU Octave language
octave-epstk - GNU Octave encapsulated postscript toolkit
octave-gpc - Octave bindings for the General Polygon Clipper Library
octave-matcompat - Empty transition package for octave-forge
octave-plplot - Octave support for PLplot, a plotting library
octave-sp - Semidefinite Programming functions for GNU Octave
octave-statdataml - GNU Octave package for XML-based data exchange
matwrap - A wrapper generator for matrix languages

There are some more packages which would be nice to have such as
octave-vtk and WaveLab. Want to learn to become a Debian maintainer?

WaveLab mex may not be permissable because the license may not
be GPL compatible.  That's up to John to decide, I guess.
