If you know the multivariate kernel you want to use, and the grid you
want to smooth over, it is straightforward to loop over the grid and
compute the regressions.  To program a general estimator for a wide
class of kernels would be substantially more work.  See e.g. -kdens-
on SSC and

A simple conic (triangle) kernel in 2 dimensions is easiest, see e.g.
