as discussed over in bug #51839, and recently brought up again in
neither octave nor matlab have a function that easily modifies the values of
the tick labels for plots created with the polar function.  In matlab, the
newer polarplot class produces polar objects that can be edited directly and
with the functions rticklabels and tticklabels, which perform similarly to

As the actual procedure for modifying these labels is rather cumbersome, and
involves digging into hidden child handles and understanding the arbitrary
handle ordering, this patch report is a placeholder for octave implementations
of both functions that will work on plots from polar just like the xticklabels
functions.  This will be a known expansion of the functions beyond matlab
capability, as matlab produces an error if either r- or tticklabels is called
on anything other than a polarplot object, but if (when?) octave does rework
plot objects to be able to produce a real polarplot object, it should just be
a matter of overloading these functions for that new class.
