Making specfun pkg unmaintained

Colin Macdonald-2
Hi Carnë et al,

I've prepared a release for Symbolic.  This release has some functions
from the specfun pkg [1] but I have not finished moving them all
over---mainly because the remaining functions are of poor quality.

I suppose unmaintained feels right to me.

Here is a summary:

  * Symbolic 2.4.0 will shadow/conflict with the current specfun-1.1.0:
    dirac, heaviside, laguerreL, and lambertw: numerical functions
    we've already moved over and dropped from specfun tip.

  * With Octave 4.0.1, specfun-1.1.0 shadows:
    ellipj, ellipke, erfcinv, expint.

  * With Octave tip, as above but also:
    psi.

  * The Specfun->Symbolic transition discussion is at [1].

cheers,
Colin
