- The one in interpolate.py uses fitpack for evaluation, but is otherwise
  pure-Python, and has only procedular interface (splmake & spleval)

- There are also two Python-FITPACK interfaces, _fitpack.so and
  dfitpack.so, which both are both used by the procedural (splrep & splev)
  and OO interfaces.

IIRC, there is incompatibility in the spline representation used by 
splev and spleval.
