[kepler-dev] Build Broken (by MatlabExpression.java?)

BTW - The Ptolemy Matlab expression actor uses JNI to communicate
with Matlab.  I believe there is now a pure Java Matlab interface
which is much more robust than JNI.  I would support tossing the
Ptolemy Matlab expression actor for a non-JNI Matlab actor.

Nandita create a MatlabStartScript utility that looks like it starts
a remote Matlab process using Runtime.getRuntime().exec().  
I'm not so sure if this is the right thing, since it starts a 
separate process each time.  It might be better to have a 
more integrated actor?  However, I'm not sure what the plan is
for this actor, so there could easily be good uses for it.



    MatlabExpression code is apparently keeping the nightly build from 
    compiling. Would however is working on this please fix ASAP!
    (And is this different that the Matlab actor in PTII ? (which we could 
    put in Kepler)
