[SciPy-dev] one more scipy.optimize.line_search question

hi all,
I wonder what does the parameter amax=50 mean (in optimize.line_search 
Seems like this parameter is never used in the func, moreover, amax is 
defined in scipy.optimize module as a func.

Also, in the middle of the func it has line
maxiter = 10
this one seems to be very small to me.
don't you think it's better to handle the param in input args?

Also, don't you think that having 2 line_search funcs is ambiguous?
(I mean one in scipy.optimize, python-written, and one in 
scipy.optimize.linesearch, binding to minpack2)

Regards, D.
