I think you mean "static" is a keyword, so you can't create a variable
or function called "static".

I don't have any plans to remove the "static" keyword as another way
of saying "persistent".  OTOH, I'm not sure that we need both names.
I believe that we have "static" only because it was implemented before
any released version of Matlab had "persistent".
