Hi, Dirk: 

      Will Quantlib now support the Nelson / Siegel / Svensson and 
spline models for the term structure of interest rates, as does the 
"termstrc" package (and as documented in the companion paper, Ferstl and 
Hayden 2008 "Zero Coupon Yield Curve Estimation with the Package 
termstrc" http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=1307149)?
