Indeed, those tools are not part of the distribution. Including gmsh is easy as
there's a pre-compiled binary for windows. I won't include (or even try) OpenDX,
because of its dependency on a X-server. I have no idea whether this would
be complicated, but maybe the author should think about using regular octave
plotting capabilities, instead of relying on an external tool (jhandles already
provides quite some good 3d visualization features).
