The 16april2003 ado file update includes, in part, a statement:
    "8.  ml did not correctly compute the tolerance for the 
	nrtolerance() option when the nr or bhhh options
	were also specified.  ... "
However the -nr- and -bhhh- options are undocumented in the ref manuals 
or on-line help for -ml.

There was a helpful but brief mention of the options in a Statalist 
message on 03 Jan 2002 from Vince Wiggins and Weihua Guan (StataCorp), 
stating in part that "The DFP, BFGS, and BHHH can be used by -ml- 
programmers, but they are not currently documented, though they may be 
in the future."

Can they be documented please?
