   Split the vanilla bean lengthwise, scrape the seeds
   into a bowl and stir in flour, sugar, and zest.  Add
   the egg yolk, butter, and salt. Knead the mixture
   until it just forms a dough.  Flatten dough into a
   round and chill it, wrapped in wax paper, for 1 hour.
   Remove sides of a 9-inch springform pan, oil bottom of
   pan lightly, and press some of the dough, 1/8-inch
   thick, on bottom of pan.  Bake in the middle of a
   preheated 400f oven for 10-12 minutes or until it is
   golden, and chill it.  Butter the sides of the pan,
   attach it to the bottom, and press the remaining
   dough, 1/8-inch thick, to the side, sealing it to the
   bottom crust. In a bowl with an electric mixer, beat
   the cream cheese with the sugar, flour, zests, and
   vanilla until mixture is smooth.  Beat in the eggs and
   egg yolks, one at a time, beating lightly after each
   addition.  Stir in cream.  Pour the filling into the
   prepared crust and bake in the middle of a preheated
   550f oven for 12 minutes. Reduce heat to 200f and bake
   for 60 minutes more.  Let cool in pan on a rack. Chill
   it overnight and them remove sides of pan.
