You can actually have a fast startup IIR (which is what it is) using a 
counter as the inverse of the feedback coeff and saturate it at the 
desired long term coeff value


Y[n] = Y[n-1] * (1-1/c) + (1/c)*X[n]

c1 = 1 to K, K is where 1/K < 1/A, A is long term input coeff

c = min(c1, 1/A)

This assumes unity gain.

This gets you stable long term single pole filtering with fast startup.
