Dear Robert,
Maybe I wasn't being clear enough. What I would like to request you to
implement is the definition given here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Variance#Generalizations
In my opinion, this is what is done in most cases, and in most signal
processing books. I'll try to give you some evidence if this is not
convincing enough.
Thanks!
Kumar
