 At the moment Scipy does not have useful solvers for large-scale root
 finding problems with known  Jacobians. The existing solves are dense-
 matrix routines from MINPACK.

 Though, in principle there is also an implementation for inexact Newton
 method already there, but with a known Jacobian, a trust region based
 method would probably be more reliable. (Although for completely matrix-
 free problems, inexact Newton-Krylov is probably reasonable.)

 I'm closing this ticket --- and opened a reminder at #1790
