Pd's cubic interpolator is a standard one (not the only standard one)
-- it's the same Lagrange interpolator as the one used in csound.
[tabread4c~] or whatever it is was an attempt to bring in the one used
in supercollider, which is an Hermite cubic interpolator.  I haven't
tried to figure out what max uses, but it wouldn't be too hard.
