Yes, I run into the same problem. 

Since the oscillation frequency is given by the point around which the 
function is centered, it would be good to have it centered around zero.
The FFT assumes the x axis to be [0..n], so how should I do this?
The functions I have to transform later won't be symmetrical, so the trick 
abs(fftdata) is not possible.
