I don't understand what you mean here.

Can you please adher to the respective functions of the _current_
Octave version, with minimal changes. The original copyright in these
functions must be retained. The minor changes don't justify a further
copyright line. But it must be mentioned as a comment in the code that
you (not me) copied and slightly changed them. In the copyright
notice, it can't be stated that the function is part of Octave,
because strictly speaking it is not (it is meant to be distributed
with the optim package). Use 'this function' instead of 'Octave'.

Initializing it this way is not necessary, __all_opts__ or
__all_stat_opts__ only store the options which specific functions
anounce. 'nlinfit' has to announce all options it means to support,
and only these, but including those it supports indirectly by calling
optimset with them. The latter of course means having some identical
options both in the optimset and in the statset system.

Have you got a private mercurial repository of your versions, or would
you like to make one? I could also do this with the versions you
