OK, I need to finalize the decision on this.
http://projects.scipy.org/scipy/scipy/ticket/285
Here are the current alternatives.

1. Implement the patch attached to the ticket.
   (I dislike this, as discussed earlier.)
2. Change nothing (ticket becomes "won't fix")
   (I am ok with this.)
3. Move the brent `code` into a `Brent` class.
   The `brent` function (with unchanged signature)
   remains as a convenient user interface to the `Brent` 
   class, which can be used directly when more refined 
   control is needed.  The class will include bracketing 
   parameters as a response to the ticket.
   (I think this is best.)

Cheers,
Alan Isaac
