st: Penalised splines

Hi All,

Has anyone implemented a penalised cubic spline?

The form I am looking for is minimising the usual least squares but with
an additional area under the second derivative as a penalty.

sum_{j=1}  ( y_j - f(x_j))^2  + lambda  integral ( f''(t))^2 dt

I couldn't find anything through findit on penalised but I guess it could
be part of another spline function.
