Yes. I'll likely convert that one as well, but not right now. I've got 
quite a bit of experience with nonlinear function fitting, from another 
graduate program, a lifetime ago. (Or 3-4 years ago. or whatever.)

A 'fit' module that does polynomial and more general least-squares 
fitting, linear and spline interpolation, and kernel density estimators 
would be really handy in quite a few situations.

(Heck, let's just incorporate williams/science while we're at it. 
Batteries included!)
