[SciPy-dev] some problems with optimize.py docstrings

I can't commit :

Could not read status line: Connection reset by peer (http://svn.scipy.org)

and my ping svn.scipy.org fails (already very long for now), either fix 
it if you can or maybe it will be better if you will download 
optimize.py from the location I had mentioned:


I would attach the file to the letter but then I get "wait for moderator 
approvement" because letter exceeds max size 40 kb or kind of.

Regards, D.
