Initially it will be two derivative free optimizers: the differential
evolution algorithm (global optimizer) and the Nelder–Mead simplex
algorithm (local optimizer). I have had good experiences especially
with the first one. I will add more further down the line (derivatives
dependent, specific domains). However I am likely to postpone the
optimizers to the second beta.

For the short term I prefer to stick to the current model. But I may
consider this at a later stage, I have to think about it....
