ξις νιόζ <icef-research@hse.ru>:
A call to -ml maximize- can include a init(b0) option to specify a
starting point and an iterate(1) option to specify iterating only
once.  The resulting b vector could be passed to another program,
transformed to a new b0 and then passed to another call of -ml
maximize, init(b0) iterate(1)- ad infinitum (or something short of
infinitum, perhaps).
