consolidate matlab actors
MatlabExpression and PtMatlabExpression both execute expressions
in matlab. They should be combined such that if the ptmatlab JNI
and matlab shared libraries are found, PtMatlabExpression is used,
otherwise MatlabExpression. (PtMatlabExpression is preferred since
it does not require starting matlab each time the actor fires).

I can help on this one.
Combining the two actors seems reasonable to me.
In addition, the expression language has a matlab() function.
Perhaps doing a feature set comparison would help here?
As an aside, I feel that a programmer is most productive when
removing code because deleted code has fewer bugs. Refactoring
code and removing duplicate functionality is very productive.
