As in your patch it looks like iters_fixed_T should be used in
gsl_siman_solve and n_tries is for gsl_siman_solve_many.

At the time I didn't document it in the manual because I wasn't sure
whether it was finished/tested, since it isn't used in the test
programs.  I believe the idea is simply to run n_tries in parallel.

I've applied the patch, thanks.

I don't have any.  If gsl_siman_solve_many is useful we should update
it so it can be used and go in the manual as an "official" function.
