Yes, and this is one of issues why (as I had informed some month ago) I 
don't want openopt being part of scipy: I have no enough time to satisfy 
all those (changing from time to time) strict requirements to docstring 
standards, unittests, build system etc. I still intend to fix the build 
issue, but in future, when I'll have enough time. It requires changing 
"from ... import ..." for all openopt files.
