[SciPy-user] adaptive simulated annealing (ASA)

It's been a while, but I remember ASA having a fairly straightforward interface 
(set up one big config structure, then call one or two functions).  The 'asamin' 
matlab wrapper isn't much code at all, and the guy that wrote that didn't have 
SWIG. :) I doubt you will find many simmulated annealing packages better or more 
featured than ASA, so I'd suggest taking a stab at wrapping it yourself.
