Well, I guess it was me who was most vocal on the topic.

I started writing the code - I translated the Powell's book code into
C so we had no problem with copyrights. I haven't debugged it thorougly
though. I started integrating it into GSL but did not do much work on it. 
I am stuck with a lot of other stuff.

If you want to try something/work on it I can send you the codes I got.

However if it is not urgent please wait until weekend - I will try
to find couple of hours then and clean up the code a bit adn then
send it to you.
