 Hello.

 I’ve made changes to scipy.optimize so that it is possible to set bracket
 parameters from higher level calls such as fmin_powell. For example, it
 allows to do:

 scipy.optimize.fmin_powell( foo, bracket_keywords = { 'grow_limit': 10 } )

 Note that changes in are incomplete in the sense that similar changes
 could also be done for brent parameters as well as to golden, etc. in
 order to keep a consistence interface. I could finish this if the patch
 was to be included in scipy. Let me know.

 The patch is attached. This is against scipy.optimize.optimize.py rev
 2219.
