I don't want to re-invent the wheel, and I'm trying to code up something
that does a Nelder-Mead simplex method to minimise a non-linear objective
function.  (I'm porting something I originally wrote in matlab, using the 
optimisation toolbox funciton fmins).

Is there already something available to do this included in R?
Do people have suggestions on the best way to do this?
