We will also need to modify WaveLab to work properly under Octave.
A set of patches and a Makefile should do the job.  It will also be useful
to write an interface that corresponds to MATLAB's wavelet toolbox.

Can someone close to Stanford make contact with David Donoho?  He does
not respond to e-mail.  He might be willing to modify the license or
allow us to submit patches?
