The 'inv' function is well-known and documented. The 'inverse' name is a
simple alias for 'inv', but it is completely undocumented in the user manual.
'help inverse' shows the docstring for 'inv', but 'doc inverse' falls back to
the concept index and lands on 'pinv'.

Do we want 'doc inverse' to work, or for 'inverse' to appear in the function
index? Or do we want it to be omitted from the manual intentionally?

Aside from that question, at a minimum I think we should change 'inverse' to
'inv' in the two files expr.txi and invhilb.m.

This bug report was inspired by a question in #octave by Labu.
