OK, my bad again.  I'll stop trying to be useful with low-level parts of the 
code I'm not truly intimately familiar with.  Two tries, two mistakes, one too 

I'll make it up by working on numerical code I can actually do something 
useful with.  I'll try to contribute something for fitting, the included 
polyfit is nice but numerically less uniform in error and stable (due to 
condition issues) than a Chebyshev-based fit.  There's also the lingering 
issue of numerically stable evaluation of polyval()...  I'll find something to 
pay for my mistakes with :)
