Custom function implementation of Neville's algorithm for polynomial interpolation; see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neville's_algorithm .

The degree of the interpolating polynomial is determined by the length of the lists x resp. y; if ValueCount(x)=n then the degree is n-1.

The sample output above therefore is the value of the third degree interpolating polynomial at t=3,24.
