Package: python-scipy
Version: 0.18.1

I have a MATLAB program that uses fsolve() from the optimization toolbox.
I found that scipy offers a similar function.  I spent a fair amount of
time translating my program into Python, only to discover that the scipy
implementation (unlike the MATLAB one) requires that the number of
functions and the number of variables be equal.  The documentation for the
underlying minpack programs (hybrd and hybrj) makes this clear, but the
scipy documentation does not.  It should.  I suggest the attached patch.

(It might also be a good idea to add a mention of leastsq, which can handle
an over- or under-determined problem.)
