VAR() Variance UDF

                 Key: PIG-1150
             Project: Pig
          Issue Type: New Feature
    Affects Versions: 0.5.0
         Environment: UDF, written in Pig 0.5 contrib/
            Reporter: Russell Jurney
             Fix For: 0.5.0

I've implemented a UDF in Pig 0.5 that implements Algebraic and calculates 
variance in a distributed manner, based on the AVG() builtin.  It works by 
calculating the count, sum and sum of squares, as described here:

Is this a worthwhile contribution?  Taking the square root of this value using 
the contrib SQRT() function gives Standard Deviation, which is missing from Pig.
