Extend evaluation metric parameter to support a list of methods

I was puzzled by the following: 1. Evaluate returns a dictionary. I thought this odd given metric can only be a single method, e.g., 'auc' 2. When metric is set to 'auto' it returns multiple methods as a dictionary, which explains #1.

So it would seem to make a sense to allow the evaluation metric parameter to be a list of methods and return this as a dictionary like 'auto.
