James Prieger <James.Prieger@pepperdine.edu> found a reference to a
-moptimize()- subroutine in the on-line help and documentation that does not
exist, yet:

-moptimize_results_coefs()- was meant to be a shortcut for
-moptimize_results_eq_coefs()- without the equation argument.

-moptimize_results_coefs()- will be made available in a future ado-file
update.

In the mean time, as James already noticed, -moptimize_result_eq_coefs()- can
be used instead.
