I haven't looked too closely at the library yet. Just a quick glimpse
over the tutorial.
I noticed that the objective functions needs to derive from one of the
libraries main classes.
From my understand unnamed function techniques already in boost and the
C++11 lambdas can't be used as an objective function. I think it will be
more useful when you support those. For example, instead of (*args)[N]
phoenix placeholders could be used. See for example spirit and the
