re: printVarSummary, min/max

If you are using small arrays, determining the min/max
would impose a small time increment. However, a *LARGE* variable
will take a significant time. There is no magic! The min and max
require time. If there are lots of variable ... the min/max overhead
would be large.

There is a ticket for printVarStats function which would allow a user
to specify what statistics would be output.

ALso .. please see

   opt = True
   opt@PrintStat = True
   statb = stat_dispersion(b, opt )
