true that "4" doesn't say much about the interpolation alogrithm and 
that is definitely a weakness in the current naming scheme.
it was not my intention to say that the current scheme is the 
non-plus-ultra in sophistication. it, however, was my intention to say 
that [tabread_tweak~] is one of the worst possible names i could think of.
i do not say that this is is "constructive" criticism, rather i meant it 
as a preventive criticism.
