I prefer minimalize to be made obsolescent; instead one should use I := IdealOfMinGens(I) which is longer to write, but also clearer (in my opinion). Actually I presume the correct way to call minimalize is with a reference parameter, like this minimialize(ref I).

This does assume that IdealOfMinGens will preserve as much information as possible when it creates the new ideal.

Trying to "save" it and postponing it, I wasted time.
I realized that the CoCoALib function myMinimalize is just a member function.

So, keeping minimalize in CoCoA-5 (after removing minimalized) was not as compatible with CoCoALib as I had imagined.
Moreover it was actually hard to do and intrisically inefficient, so I made it obsolescent.
John will be pleased ;-)
