 Previously (before #254) NCA used the L-BFGS optimizer, and now it uses
 the SGD optimizer.  Realistically we should allow the user the option of
 whichever optimizer they like; there are situations where one optimizer
 may turn out to be better than others.  After all, what NCA really is is
 just an objective function anyway.
