Oh, my God!

I have studied fmin_l_bfgs_b, fmin_tnc, and fmin_cobyla before, but I
don't quit understand the "cons" parameter for fmin_cobyla after I have
found COBYLA and have seen the example shipped with it.

It seems that the interface of fmin_cobyla is a little different with
that is provided with COBYLA. Anyway, it doesn't matter and I think
fmin_cobyla is what I want.

Thanks :-)
