No doubt about that. There was a need for lowess/stl/loess at one point, and I 
already have parts done. I just had to patch the rest. The info was given 
just as an example of implementation. The python part was strongly dependent 
on the underlying C code, hence the multiplication of subclasses. I 
considered simplify the implementation, but  realized it already had 
everything I needed in a pretty neat form.
