I wrote this code back when I had easy access to matlab and before I  
knew
python. I simply have not had time to port the broyden code to python  
yet.
Hopefully I will find time soon (it would also be nice to organize the
pieces in a modular fashion as Matthieu suggested, but I have simply not
had time to look over that yet.)

There are still a few things I miss about matlab, especially a good
line-by-line profiler, but generally I agree that python+numpy is
much better for programming.

Michael.
