 coefficients, values, etc?  Maybe just clarify that in the documentation.

 Yes, that needs a better explanation.  I'll update the patch later

 What do you think about dropping the 'logarithmic' method entirely? I
 agree with John (the creator of the ticket)--the formula is "incorrect" (a
 subjective term, I know).  I suspect the intent for that method was
 actually what is now implemented as the 'geometric' method, but an
 incorrect formula was used.

 Unless it turns out that there is some common use for that particular
 formula, I don't think there is any reason to keep it in chirp().
