There is a little bit of searching in scipy's info
info('minimize') will look through the docstrings and report functions
containing that word.
In new scipy info is in *scipy.utils.helpmod* until we figure out what
to do with it.
If you are running new scipy
>>> from scipy.utils.helpmod import info
>>> from scipy import info
if you are running old scipy.
info was written just before help was available from Python, but it still
returns more docstring information than help does.
