But -q just means to be silent at startup (not print the banner).  The
-H option (though you wrote -h, I assumed you meant -H) seems more
relevant here, since it is documented to tell octave to not save
commands to the history list.  I can see how this could easily be
interpreted to mean "completely disable the command history feature",
but that is not quite what it means.  We can make it appear to have
that meaning (assuming the user does not later set saving_history to
true and execute some commands) if someone will do the work to modify
the history library to keep track of whether thie history list has
been modified, or point out how to extract that information from it
given the current interface.
