st: RE: kdensity with user defined kernel functions
At worst, I think you need to write everything yourself.
For speed (and possibly other reasons) the hard work in -kdensity- is handed to part of the executable and I can't see any hooks for using your own kernel. So cloning -kdensity- would get only part of the way there.
Alternatively, Ben Jann's -kdens- package seems more transparent.
