Is anyone else besides me reminded of a "color of bike shed"

However in this case I think, it does make sense to keep it in a
single object and set interpolation through messages: all suggested
tabread4~ variants do a table read using 4 table points for
interpolation, so all of them could be named tabread4~. They only
differ in the actual formula in use. Variants of 4-point interpolation
may also be useful in other objects like vd~ and tabosc4~. Here the
same message interface could be used again, which is good for
