[SciPy-user] OpenOpt svn broken on Windows

Since OO has solvers "ALGENCAN" (for ALGENCAN v 1.0) and "algencan" (for 
ALGENCAN v 2.0) openopt must have the files ALGENCAN_oo.py and 
algencan_oo.py (because calling solver (that is done in OO by name) 
depend on file names).

I could just remove ALGENCAN (in anyway in future ALGENCAN v 1.0 support 
will be ceased), but currently some tests made by me show v 1.0 works 
better than 2.0.

So I intend to remove ALGENCAN_oo.py for next OO release, and doing it 
right now isn't  a good idea.
