Description Ryosuke Niwa 2012-01-30 20:04:08 PST
It's kind of bogus to use standard deviation for sample size smaller than 20 (for most tests). We should use some unbiased estimates for standard deviation. As a starter, we can use Bessel's correction.

Also, I'd like to see stdev or some distribution metrics in the chart. 
This is another story though.
