## [x,v,flag,out,df,d2f] = fminunc_compat (f,x,opt,...) - M*tlab-like optimization
##
## Imitation of m*tlab's fminunc(). The optional 'opt' argument is a struct,
## e.g. produced by 'optimset()'.
##
## Supported options
## -----------------
## Diagnostics, [off|on] : Be verbose
## Display    , [off|iter|notify|final]
##                       : Be verbose unless value is "off"
## GradObj    , [off|on] : Function's 2nd return value is derivatives
## Hessian    , [off|on] : Function's 2nd and 3rd return value are
##                         derivatives and Hessian.
## TolFun     , scalar   : Termination criterion (see 'ftol' in minimize())
## TolX       , scalar   : Termination criterion (see 'utol' in minimize())
## MaxFunEvals, int      : Max. number of function evaluations
## MaxIter    , int      : Max. number of algorithm iterations
##
## These non-m*tlab are provided to facilitate porting code to octave:
## -----------------------
## "MinEquiv" , [off|on] : Don't minimize 'fun', but instead return the
##                         option passed to minimize().
##
## "Backend"  , [off|on] : Don't minimize 'fun', but instead return
##                         [backend, opt], the name of the backend
##                         optimization function that is used and the
##                         optional arguments that will be passed to it. See
##                         the 'backend' option of minimize().
##
## This function is a front-end to minimize().
