    I assume the number of samples (weight) is the more
    important tunable. One option is you can require factor
    to be a power of two that is much larger than weight,
    then at least you can store factor/weight precomputed
    and multiply by it instead of doing a divide in ewma_add.
    Then ewma_get can also just be a shift as well.
