So, I'm looking for loops on a manifold, or maybe non-loops for
variation.  The trick is to write down the update equation /
evaluation and to find a good mapping.

The path of incremental update might be most useful as I imagine this
can generate more interesting trajectories than simple wave-shaping..
The core problems there are evaluation of elementary functions and
constructions of derivatives (through autodiff).
