I would find it very useful, if it would go for example into
scipy.signal. I looked at it in the talkbox but not very carefully,
except for running a few examples.

One part that I haven't figured out, is whether the reflection
coefficients can be recovered as partial autocorrelation. It seems
this way from some descriptions, but I didn't work my way through it
enough to translate the different terminologies and definitions.
