Need varargs form of NumberUtils.max(), etc
-------------------------------------------

                 Key: LANG-642
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-642
             Project: Commons Lang
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: lang.math.*
            Reporter: david cogen
            Priority: Minor


There should be a varargs form of the NumberUtils.max() and min() functions.
E.g. int max (int... numbers)

This might conflict with the existing int max (int[] numbers) but that function would in fact
not be needed if the varargs form existed because an array could be supplied to it just as
easily.

Or, if it is undesirable to remove max(int[] numbers), then a varargs function could be defined
as
int max (int number1, int... moreNumbers)
which would work for any number of arguments greater than 0.

Of course this function should be implemented for all number types (byte, short, float, double,
etc) and both max() and min() should be provided.
