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.
