It's probably worth pointing out that most Matlab utilities are Matlab
only (no extensions), and the code dumped is usually just an archive
that you unpack somewhere and put on your Matlab path.

That's the rough equivalent of a python package that is pure python,
and for which the install method is copying or linking the <mypackage>
directory into some directory on your python path.

I can imagine something like a 'snippet' distribution format, which is
just a README file, and the <mypackage> directory.  Obviously if
someone wanted to be more pypi about the whole thing, that would be
easy too.

See y'all,

Matthew
