I think detrending is a required functionality for the welch method.

Global detrending can be easily applied before feeding the data to
welch, but what is required in most application is the independent
detrending of each data segment used in the estimator.  Detrending up to
an arbitrary polynomial order, in addition to the common linear
detrending, would be a nice addition too.

PS: the lack of segment by segment detrending in Matlab's welch()
function forces me to maintain a forked version of it.
