Just drop the idea of matching more than two sample points. It's what 
makes [tabread4~] miss the opportunity to be C1, but it's also in exchange 
for pretty much nothing. Well, maybe it's not nothing, but I still have no 
clue about what's the point of matching x[t-1] and x[t+2] for a curve that 
will only be used from x[t+0] to x[t+1]. When you get to x[t+2], one 
almost-arbitrarily different cubic has just passed, and you're entering 
another almost-arbitrarily different cubic, so the cubic used between 
x[t+0] and x[t+1] seems irrelevant at x[t+2].

Perhaps you have a totally different way of explaining it that would show 
that two adjacent cubic's continuations into each other are closely 
related and have special meaning, but if you do, please speak up cause I 
don't see any of it.
