To be more precise, the spline function evaluator for functions - that is,
the internal spline function f_spline in fnintern.cpp - assumes the location
of the parameter is always the fourth stack entry.  This effectively
supports only 3D vectors (support for other vector sizes was added only
recently).  To change it, change the line in spline from

Get_Spline_Val((SPLINE *)(f->private_data), PARAM_N_X(3), Result, &Terms);


Terms = ((SPLINE *)(f->private_data))->Terms;
Get_Spline_Val((SPLINE *)(f->private_data),PARAM_N_X(Terms),Result,&Terms);
