The pgsql-patches mailing list is for submitting modifications to
Postgres, not for asking these sorts of questions.

stddev() already exists. Take a look at the implementation of the
existing aggregate functions, which can be found in
src/backend/utils/adt (float.c, numeric.c, etc.) There is no need to
modify the core Postgres backend code to add new aggregate functions, of

I suggest doing a modicum of research first, and then asking on
pgsql-hackers if you have more specific questions about Postgres
