Moving average nicely fits into CDEF format since it computes average
of N previous data points. N is computed based on time.
For example CDEF:av=x,3600,MAVG will produce moving average of variable
x over last hour.
A slightly different approach is to define aggregate function type.
That is f(var, var2, ... varn, parameter1, param2, ... ) -> value.
Whe used in PRINT it will return a value. When used in CDEF it will
creade a new constant(=value) datasource. Average, sum, stddev, percentiles
are good examples of such functions.
