Dear R Developers (I think in particular Brian)

Especially for larger optimization problems, it would be nice to have an
entry point for C/C++ code to the R optimizers (the ones which are called
when using optim()), where the client just has to provide the functions
fminfn() and fmingr() and calls directly, e.g., vmmin() (all from
$RHOME/src/main/optim.c). Are there any plans for providing such an entry
