I'm currently building a replacement for it in my words (keywords I mean ;) ) but maybe a better solution would be to contribute some code into NumPy.

I think Prony's method would probably be a better fit for `scipy.signal`. Please be mindful not to translate this from existing GPL code, but to implement it afresh.
