Orphanings/dead packaging libnc-dap; octave releases and octave-forge future

I'm planning on dropping libnc-dap.  It is no longer supported and 
functionality has moved into the netcdf 4 library.

The only package currently requiring libnc-dap is:


Also, apparently octave is planning a 3.4 release this weekend which I 
would like to see get into F15.  These two events I believe will drive 
the final stake into the heart of the octave-forge package at which 
point we will need to start packaging the components separately.  Since 
this is how upstream distributes them anyway, I see no reason not to 
move in this direction in all possible haste.  I will try to get back to 
my earlier efforts on creating a packaging template for octave packages 
as soon as I can.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
