I can't give you a specific answer for your question but you can find a
hackish solution on http://www.scipy.org/Cookbook/FittingData, section
1.3. This will not scale terribly well if you have a large number of
different datasets, and you will probably need to write an abstraction
layer to generate the cost functions.

Good luck,
