Hi *,

I am sorry to report that my own humble efforts in this matter just hit
a dead end: Not only does the colt public API depend on interfaces from
the hep.aida.bin packages, but those interfaces (BinFunction1D et al) do
them selfs depend on other *classes* in this package (DynamicBin1D),
effectively tying them to that particular implementation. I don't see
how we can get rid of this mess without rewriting those classes from
scratch. Unfortunately, I cannot tell which parts of the colt API are
actually used (I hardly understand what it is doing).
