Thanks for this hint. I think just that you mentioned this we will
include some steppers with dense output, they are in fact very nice.
We have tought in an earlier stage of this library about including them.
But we droped that idea, because there exist only a few steppers which
provide a output function and this concept can not be applied to all
steppers in general.
