hi Jacob,
I would like to see its comparison with mlsl or psarms, that have similar
algorithm (combination of local and global search) and Python API available. You
could easily done it in OpenOpt framework ( http://openopt.org ), additional
computation time is usually insufficient. There you could compare it with some
other global solvers ( http://openopt.org/GLP ), especially I would recommend
interalg ( http://openopt.org/interalg ), de and asa.
