      sounds good.
      and errm ... in max v4?
      and i am not sure if that what i am doing since years is right: when the number of elements is even, what do i do:
      1.) get the average of the two middle elements or 2.) find the average of the whole list and choose one of the middle numbers accorign to where the average lies. ?
      -110

      option 1.
      first, sort list.
      then, if list length is uneven, take middle element if list length is even, take average of middle two elements.
