Comment(by zyv):

 Please check out my report here:
 http://code.google.com/p/f2py/issues/detail?id=31 If you have anything to
 add, you are most welcome.

 In what concerns patching the optimizer, I don't think that it's practical
 to patch every single Fortran file in order to concatenate the output to a
 string instead of writing it to the stdout and then return this string to
 Python.

 Here I am not talking about particular useful bits of information, but in
 general, if you explore the code of L-BFGS-B for instance, you will find
 out that it can yield a lot of interesting information, warnings etc. just
 in form of free-form text.

 And I'd really like to have this somehow captured as well.
