Changes (by deil):

  * keywords:  Hesse, Hessian, numerical differentiationrical di =>
               derivative, numerical derivative, algorithmic
               derivative, Jacobian, Hessian,  scipy.diff
  * component:  scipy.optimize => Other


Comment:

 I've changed the ticket summary, component and keywords to reflect the
 fact that this enhancement request has expanded.

 It's now basically: please add a scipy.diff package to compute
 derivatives.

 The existing scipy.misc.derivative is only for 1D and could be replaced by
 a more feature-complete scipy.diff.
