Hi,

In pull request #196, I am proposing to simplify the signature of
optimization wrappers (minimize, minimize_scalar, etc.) to get
something like:

  x, info = minimize(fun, x0, [jac, constraints], options)

This boils down to eliminating the full_output and retall parameters
from respective function. Besides, the info dictionnary would always be
returned.

Comments welcome - https://github.com/scipy/scipy/pull/196

Thanks,
