## opt = optimset_compat (...)         - manipulate m*tlab-style options structure
## 
## This function returns a m*tlab-style options structure that can be used
## with the fminunc() function.
##
## INPUT : Input consist in one or more structs followed by option-value
## pairs. The option that can be passed are those of m*tlab's 'optimset'.
## Whether fminunc() accepts them is another question (see fminunc()).
## 
## Two extra options are supported which indicate how to use directly octave
## optimization tools (such as minimize() and other backends):
##
## "MinEquiv", [on|off] : Tell 'fminunc()' not to minimize 'fun', but
##                        instead return the option passed to minimize().
##
## "Backend", [on|off] : Tell 'fminunc()' not to minimize 'fun', but
##                       instead return the [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().
