It also appears in the scipy doc editor:
though with a pretty deficient docstring (perhaps you'd be willing to fix
I confirmed that it doesn't appear online at:
but I can't say why; perhaps because it's "buried" in module
interpolate.interpolate? (The latter also being absent from the above
online reference page.)

This suggests to me that the sub-package designer(s) considered splmake to
be a "pseudo-private" method, primarily to be used internally within the
sub-package and too low level for general use, but that would certainly beg
your next question.

Definitely someone else will have to answer that, sorry. :-( (Not that my
answers above are all that useful...)
