The main thing I was missing in matlab are namespaces, everything the
equivalent of
form numpy import *
form pylab import *
from scipy import *
from all_my_other_packages import *

So, for a while I put many functions in one file and imported them as
function handles.

I liked that I could edit a plot interactively and save as script.
This saved me a lot of time reading and figuring out the docs.
The new style classes in matlab look almost like python, but I haven't
worked with them yet.
