Thanks to the good start provided by Heinko, I have completed addition
of read support for MATLAB(tm) version 5.0 mat files. Sparse matrices
are also read and converted to SciPy sparse matrices if you have
compiled the sparse package (turned off by default).
The changes are in CVS and are part of the io.loadmat function (it now
recognized v5 files).
Matlab(tm) Structures and objects are handled as (arrays of) dummy
classes and are also supported.
Cell arrays are handled as an Object array.
