Can you be specific about what the precise bug is that you think is
worth a Stable Release Update (SRU)? It also helps to be specific in
your bug report that what you want is an SRU (since the development
release already has octave 4.0.3).
I don't think that it is possible to SRU octave in 16.04 because of the
liboctave3 -> liboctave3v5 library transition.
As you mentioned, an easy workaround for any user is to configure and
install octave from the PPA ppa:octave/stable.
