any one use scipy.interpolate.KroghInterpolate?
a bit quaint or maybe lost in action?
Someone thought that for completeness they also must implement the algorithms which are known to be unstable?

It's a bit of a motley crew as far as methods are concerned. I had never heard of Krogh interpolation. It might be very good but no background seems to be available. 
They do have Akima for some reason and there again not others (e.g. Hyman 89)

I think the average data scientist (whatever that means) would not appreciate the subtleties of B-Splines etc. etc. Feels a bit CAD/CAM..
