[R] optmizing with monotone stepfunctions?

Before re-inventing the wheel I would like to ask: does anyone know about 
an optimizer in R which can reliably identify which value of X (Xopt) leads 
to Y (Yopt) closest to Ytarget in

Y <- MonotoneStepFun(X)

optionally with the restriction that Yopt <= Ytarget
(at least if any Y <= Ytarget, otherwise any Yopt > Ytarget would be the 
preferred answer)

If none is known, I will write one.

Thank you
