Embedded copies of the Cephes library are indeed abundant in the Debian archive. Thus I assume there should be no problem with yet another one. At some point it would be nice to deduplicate the code, but for time being I think this is OK.

swig-generated bindings are also abundant in the Debian archive, and they do not seem to be frowned upon.

Thanks for the contribution!
