As Robert pointed out, the other programs support correctly support
As I pointed out in my earlier email the syntax allowed by romberg:

romberg(romberg(x^2+y^2, x, 0, y), y, 0, 1);

is semantically dubious. I thought it was now agreed upon that 
functions should
evaluate all their arguments, if at all possible, which apparently
romberg does not do.
