Here's what I have right now for fftfreq. I'm excited to have factored
fftfreq out and added optional minimum and maximum frequency bounds.
The rest of fourier.py is 1 email back.

This interface does not facilitate the usecase of having minimum and
maximum frequency bounds and simply desiring as many freq_count and
freq_sample_rate as makes sense with the bounds.

Thinking: the purpose of freq_sample_rate was to test against data
that had been generated at sampled at a specific different rate, and
was occurring in a larger recording. But maybe it would be more
appropriate to consolidate that information into freq_count, min_freq,
and max_freq, given in real recordings there is usually only one time

    if sample_rate is None and freq_sample_rate is None:
        sample_rate = 1
        freq_sample_rate = 1
    elif sample_rate is None:
        sample_rate = freq_sample_rate
    elif freq_sample_rate is None:
        freq_sample_rate = sample_rate
    if not dc_offset:
        freq_count += 1
    if min_freq is None:
        min_freq = freq_sample_rate / freq_count
    min_freq /= sample_rate
    if freq_count % 2 == 0:
        if max_freq is None:
            max_freq = freq_sample_rate / 2
        max_freq /= sample_rate
        neg_freqs = np.linspace(-max_freq, -min_freq,
num=freq_count//2, endpoint=True)
        pos_freqs = -neg_freqs[:0:-1]
        if max_freq is None:
            max_freq = freq_sample_rate * (freq_count - 1) / 2 / freq_count
        max_freq /= sample_rate
        pos_freqs = np.linspace(min_freq, max_freq, num=freq_count//2,
        neg_freqs = -pos_freqs[::-1]
