Thanks!  This is not really numerical analysis, but it is a start
and an indication that there are at least some standard
implementations that work this way.  What would be helpful is some
general references that provide complexity and error analysis and
ideally characterize the functions for which the change of variable
approach is better than Gauss-Hermite, per the first recommendation
in [1]
