> The last step in the unholy triumvirate of statistical built-ins is the variance. We
already have the n (count) and the mean (avg). I currently have a job or two that filters
all of the data into a single reducer which just computes mean/n/variance and writes it to
a table...so my guess is that this would be a pretty big speed increase. Not a huge deal though,
as computing the variance myself is trivial.
> (Average, variance, and n can be co-computed in one pass, so if you're doing var() you
can basically have avg() and count() for free.)
