I have the same thought, Are you increasing by observation or by
explanatory variable?

For either case, I would be very interested to see this kind of
incremental least squares in statsmodels. If you are able to license
your parts as BSD, then I will look at it for sure.

We have some plans for this but not yet implemented.
