Certainly would. I'm trying to reproduce the base input impedance
using a non-uniform transmission line modelled as a cascade of around
10^3 discrete sections from which the AC equations lead to a set
of simultaneous equations in the currents (just as your teslasim
does for the coupled LCR model). The various distributed reactance
profiles are provided by justifiable physical models.

The result is not very complex, and not too slow. Right now it gives
the wrong answers but does show some promise.

(If there are any coiler/physicist/programmer types out there who
want to collaborate on a professional standard, peer reviewed 
project, the aim of which is to understand in detail the resonant
mechanisms of tesla secondaries, please do get in touch!)
