We can minimize f by maximizing -f. The majority of predefined objective functions
in smoof should be minimized by default. However, there is a handful of
functions, e.g., Keane or Alpine02, which shall be maximized by default.
For benchmarking studies it might be beneficial to inverse the direction.
do exactly that keeping the attributes.

Internally no wrapper is put around the original function. Instead the function
is copied and the body of the function is manipulated via the
Both functions will quit with an error if multi-objective functions are passed.
