Not yet, I never committed the change, the cleanest way currently is
by subclassing kde_gaussian, the dirtier version is by monkey
patching. I can look for my example scripts for both later tonight,
there is also some information on the mailing list, e.g. a subclassing
example by Anne (maybe one and a half years ago)

I'm a bit surprised about undersmoothing, because I did the changes
for the case of oversmoothing by kde_gaussian.
