I'll fix these when the interface has stabilised.

The tar file contains the built docs, but I agree it would be more
convenient. The docs are now available at

It can handle some discontinuties, but not infinites (it does handle
infinites at endpoints when used with kronrod_gauss). This is an area
where improvement is possible.

Are the discontinuities at known points? i.e. can you provide information
to the algorithm about where the difficult points are? For my use at the
moment I have functions with known discontinuities and I just split the
integral at those discontinuities.
