scipy.optimize has simulated annealing  `anneal`
there is a genetic algorithm that has been moved to the `learn`
scikits, but I never used it, and it hasn't been modified in 3 years.


I don't think there is a MOGA. There are several other machine
learning packages for python, but I don't know if any of them contains

If your optimization is computationally not very expensive, then you
could trace the pareto frontier (of the convex hull of the feasible
payoff set) by varying linear weight parameters of the objective
