Hi Jarrod,
I don't know when 0.6 will be released, maybe I will commit the changes 
and some minutes later it will be already released - then it could turn 
out to have some problems. I mean: I didn't check how 
__docformat__="restructuredtext  en" works, because if I put the line in 
start of optimize.py file my epydoc (v 2.1) says "unknown docformat" and 
So maybe epydoc will just crush on optimize.py file.
Also, I suppose that it would be better to clean optimize.py html output 
from all those auxiliary files like rosenbrock, but I don't know how to 
do this.

Ok, so I committed it 1 min ago but it requires someone to check epydoc 
output (and maybe uncomment __docformat__="restructuredtext  en" in the 
file head).
Regards, D.
