Mmh, I'm not following you here...

Ah, you should ask Matt, he's the financial analyst, I'm the  
hydrologist... Would moving_funcs.mov_average_expw do something you'd  
find useful ?
Anyhow, if the pb you have are just to specify dates, I really think  
you should give the scikits a try. And send feedback, of course...
